Getting Started in COGNOS Not bookable 15:00 - 16:30 Greenwich House, Ferrara Room (IT Training Room)

COGNOS is a reporting tool that utilises data from CUFS to provide users with additional reports and options. This master class is designed to get existing CUFS users going with the reporting tool. It covers everything from running a report successfully as well as a number of useful tips and shortcuts.

Note: What it does not do is go through in detail the outputs of each individual report. Less experienced users of the Grants and/or General Ledger modules in CUFS are recommended to attend instead one of the following courses:

  • Grants Part 2 COGNOS Reporting
  • General Ledger Reporting

These two courses not only cover the mechanics of running the reports but also more advice on how to interpret and use the information as well as discussion about when to use which report.
