Compass Reporting classes offered

EIS will be conducting training classes in the fall which will allow users to create reports from some Compass Admissions and Records data using the ARGOS reporting tool.

Refresher Report Training – September 12, 2014, (8:30am – 11:30am – Session I or 1:30pm – 4:30pm – Session II):  This training is designed to refresh an existing Argos user with the Argos Reporting tool and data.  This class will get you back up to speed on creating datablocks and reports for most of your reporting needs.  Class size is limited to 18 and has a prerequisite of Beginner Report Training.

Beginner Report Training – September 26, 2014 (8:30am – 4:30pm):  This training is designed for the person with little or no technical background in SQL Programming.   We will move at a slower pace and attempt to explain concepts in more detail to help the class better understand the Argos Reporting tool and data.  By the end of the training session, the user will be able to create datablocks and reports that will be the building blocks for most reporting needs. Class size is limited to 18.

This brochure provides additional information regarding the ARGOS reporting tool.   If you are interested in attending, please send an email by September 11 to eis-security@tamu.edu.
