Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Below are the frequently asked questions and answers for the Recon@UVa system. If you do not see your question addressed please also view our Help Topics for more information.

If you have questions on terminology, please visit the Integrated System Fin/HR Glossary page.


  • Q: Do I have to print and sign reports?
    A: Recon@UVA captures an electronic signature and date. However, if a PI has assigned an alternate approver, then the PI must sign a printed copy of the BBA report.

  • Q: How do I print "landscape" if a report comes up as "portrait?"
    A: If the report is printing portrait and you want to print it landscape, right-click on the report view and go to “Print Preview.” There is an option button to change to landscape.

  • Q: I'm clicking the printer icon and nothing is happening?
    A: If you've already opened a printable report in a second window, that window will refresh each time you request a new report. We recommend that you close that window after each printing so the window will pop-up to the front of your screen when you request a new report.

  • Q: Why does my Labor Distribution Report keep changing?
    A: The Labor Distribution Report is "live" data, reporting the most recent labor schedule posted to the Integrated System as of 3am the morning before being posted to Recon@UVa. Since it is dynamic (like the Discoverer report) you cannot retrieve archived data for old months.
