Screen Overview

This screen is used to monitor file maintenance activity made by various programs throughout the CU*BASE system. Data from the CUFMAINT file is displayed with the most current activity at the top.

Critical Monitoring

Use the Select buttons next to Program, File, and Field to filter the dashboard to filter to show only certain programs, files, or programs.  When you use these buttons on this Inquiry, you’ll access a Selection screen and will see a CRITIC indicator that will note the programs, fields, and file names that AuditLink has flagged as “critical” for your auditing team to monitor on a daily basis. You can quickly sort by that indicator and select only those items, for a quick scan of that maintenance that directly affects member accounts.


You can filter this screen to view only items in a date range, for a specific account. Use the multiple Select buttons to view only specific programs, table/files, column/fields, or Employee IDs.
