After logging in, there is an option at the bottom of the screen to opt out of e-mail notices for scheduled reports. But you probably will want to get the notices – especially to remind you monthly statements are ready.

Each card has a default FOP and a default account code tied to it; transactions on that card will automatically be charged to that default FOP and account code unless reallocated using Smart Data, the online management & reporting tool for the purchasing card.

A Cardholder and/or account Group Manager can be set up to reallocate card transactions to a different FOP or account code via Smart Data. Generally the FOPs that a reallocator can view in Banner are the same FOPs that he or she will have as options to reallocate to in Smart Data. All expense account codes will be available as options.

The reallocator logs in to Smart Data and clicks on the transaction he wants to reallocate, then chooses the desired FOP and account code from drop down menus and clicks Save. Reallocators have three business days after the end of the monthly billing period to complete their reallocations. Reallocators do not need to wait until the end of the month to reallocate; they can reallocate throughout the billing period as transactions post in Smart Data.

You can view videos tutorials on how reallocation and splitting charge to multiple FOPs on the Purchasing Card Guides page.
