Cognos Refresher Training
Prerequisites


Description

Have you previously attended Cognos training but not used the reporting tool since and would like to start using the tool again? If so then this course will enable you to get re-acquainted with Cognos..

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: Grant reports in Cognos
  • 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.

Target audience

Aimed at staff who have attended Cognos training previously but have not used the reporting tool for some time.

There is a separate course for those who have never used Cognos before. Or wish to run reports but would like to understand the data more. Refer to related courses.

Prerequisites
  • You must already have access to Cognos and the relevant folder (Grants/General Ledger)
  • Previously attended a Cognos training course
Objectives
  • Log in and run a report
  • Navigate around the screen using the icons

Aims

For existing Cognos users to become re-acquainted with the reporting tool as they have not used it for a while.
