|Overall Menu Navigation Basics|
The SIS Decision Support system's screen navigation is similar to
the campus' other Decision Support systems supporting DaFIS and
PPS. Reports are located within menu categories; currently
Student, Course and Instructor Workload. Click on the Category to view
the reports within that area. If you already know the number
of your report, ou can select the report by
either entering the report number in the "Jump to Report:"
You can return to the Main menu from one of the menu categories by
either using the browser's BACK button or by clicking on the
"breadcrumb" trail at the top left of the report
menu. If you are in the Student Reports category, the
"breadcrumb" trail shows where you are in the system:
Exiting the system is as easy as closing your browser's
|Report Selection Page Navigation / Pointers|
Overall Page Handling Pointers:
You can open the result report in a separate browser window by un-checking the "Open Results
Page in New Window" box.
If you wish to display the Field-level descriptive text, click on the Information icon on that line, or you can display all of the Field-level descriptions by clicking on the Information icon in the heading line.
If the Field Name is shown in blue, a pick list is available rather than having to type the field values in. Click on the Field Name to open the Lookup window. If you select more than one value, this report menu will automatically open the "List" option to show the multiple Field Input values. See more notes below regarding the Lookup Windows.
Report Parameters/Saving Reports Notes:
The SIS DS
system automatically saves the parameters that you used each time
you have run the report. To see this log and optionally rerun
the report using a set of previously-selected parameters, click on
the "Show Saved/Previous Process List" button.
Click on the Run Date to retrieve the prior parameters and then
press the "Process" button.
You can also create a saved report by clicking on the
"Save As New Report" button after you've entered your parameters.
You will be prompted enter and save a Report Name and
Description. The Name is specific to your usercode and the
report that you are saving, so you could have a "My
Favorite" for each report number.
Field Names that appear in Blue can be clicked to see the Lookup
screen associated with that Field. The steps necessary to return
the correct Field Input values vary depending on whether the Field
accepts multiple values. If the Field accepts multiple values,
the Field Name will be optionally plural - Academic Term Code versus
Academic Term Code(s). The two Lookup windows above illustrate
the difference between the single-entry versus multiple-entry options.
First, use the "Years" window to select the applicable
year or years and press the "Go" button. The Lookup
window will then show just the Terms, Colleges, Codes, etc that were
applicable during that period.
