What is Argos?


Argos, from Evisions, is a reporting tool that replaced Jasper.


Argos reporting is built on DataBlocks, which are created by developers in Institutional Research.  DataBlocks are collections of data aimed at a specific set of data.  Multiple reports and dashboards can be built on a single DataBlock.  Dashboards are the user interface for a Report and often contain a variety of drop-downs that enable the users to select the specific data components they need to customize their report. For example, you can select a term and a class to view students who are enrolled in that class.  


At this time, Argos is being used for all student and any other non-Finance or Human Resources reporting.  (See below for contact information for your Finance and HR reporting needs.)


If you need a report, dashboard or DataBlock created, please create a Help Desk ticket and someone will assist you.  There are two new Service requests you can choose within the Help Desk:
