Upcoming Cognos Enhancements (8/8/2016)

Good afternoon,


Over the weekend of August 8, 2016, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will update the Cognos Enterprise Reporting tool with new reports and enhancements to existing reports in response to requests by users.

  • The Monthly Vehicle Registrations Report is now available to provide information about vehicles registered in the calendar month.
  • The Hot Check Status Report is now available to provide information about the hot checks collected in your county.
  • The Administrative Ad-hoc Report has been updated to add the Ownership Evidence Code Description column and to provide the number of title and registration transactions when requested.
  • The Employee Transaction Report has been updated to provide a breakdown of totals by day instead of aggregated by the selected date range.
  • The Fee Collection and Distribution Report now provides the option for breaking down the funds distribution by Fee Types and providing subtotals for each type.
  • The Week To Date Fees and Month To Date Fees Reports have been updated to make the quantity totals match and to collect data corrected from the previous day/week (for example, when a clerk does not close out but a payment is recorded as collected for a transaction made on the previous day.
  • The Funds Remittance Report has been updated to include all information (such as apprehensions) in the print out.
  • The NMVTIS Inquiry Error Report has been updated to include the transaction date details.
  • A change has been made to the reporting database tables to reduce duplicate records and data gaps. This will improve data quality across the transactional reports, such as the Inventory Transaction Report.

These updates and enhancements are based upon your feedback as we continue improving Cognos to meet your needs. As a reminder, the information and data available to you in Cognos is based on your business area and the access permissions you have. If the report is not visible and you feel that you should have access, please contact your supervisor.


Best regards,
