The Portal Tutorial

Learn how to engage with the State's interactive financial portal

Welcome to the Arizona Financial Transparency Portal!

In an effort to make navigating The Portal easier we have created a step-by-step tutorial to empower user and agencies with the knowledge and tools to explore the State of Arizona's financial information.

Explore the State of Arizona's Data

Users can easily research and interact with State and Local Government financial information by using the EXPLORE ARIZONA'S FINANCIAL DATA menu located on the RIGHT side of the home page. One can start with a broad perspective and narrow the focus to get detailed results.

Search Specific Arizona State Data

Analyze financial data easily by using the REVENUES, EXPENDITURES, or TRANSACTION DETAILS menu located on the TOP navigation pane of the home page. These pages provide context to the State of Arizona's financial data, as well as review the most popular and important information reviewed by our users.

Saved Views

Users can use the SAVED VIEWS to answer frequently asked questions or jump start the manual filtering process. SAVED VIEWS give users answers to commonly asked questions instantaneously.

Y-Axis and X-Axis Operation Buttons and Capabilities

SHOW is the Y-Axis of the Chart. This option allows the user to view the data by Amount or Count of Records.

BY is the X-Axis of the Chart. This option allows the user to split the data by specific fields from the data.

CATEGORIZED BY gives the user the option to breakdown the data within the Y-Axis and X-Axis.

Manual Sorting and Filtering

Users can select the column header of any field in the table to SORT or FILTER the data. The flexibility of the filter operators gives users a custom way to filter allowing for a better understanding of the data. Filtering the data, allows only the rows of data that meet the filter criteria to be displayed. Reports should be filtered from a broad perspective before narrowing the focus to ensure timely report performance. For Example: If you are searching for data related to a specific Vendor and Fiscal Year - it is best to filter by Fiscal Year first.

Currently selected filters can be viewed alongside the X-Axis and Y-Axis Operations Buttons.
