There are many Reports available in Aeries Web that pull commonly accessed data into a pre-designed report format for users. Reports are available for most categories of Aeries Web functions, including Student Data, Attendance, Grades, Scheduling and more.
Reports can be accessed in several different ways. The first method of accessing reports is from the Reports tab of the Navigation Tree. This will display all available reports sorted by category. Use the filter box to search the available reports.
Note: The availability of certain reports depends upon the school the user is logged into. For example, student locator cards are not applicable to elementary Daily Attendance schools.
Reports can also be accessed from certain nodes within the pages Navigation Tree. For example Grade Reporting | Reports. Reports is the last option in most nodes of the Navigation Tree. Selecting these "Reports" options will take you to the View All Reports form already filtered to the area of the Navigation Tree you selected. In this example, under Grade Reporting, the Reports link will open up the Grade Reports.
Another way to access reports is from Print buttons on certain pages which are links to Reports. For example: when viewing a students' Grade History form, you will see a 'Print' button at the bottom of the form which will print the Grade History By Student Report.
At the top right corner of many pages a print button is available to print a report directly from a page or print the page itself, such as the Student Demographic page.
A final way of accessing reports is from View All Reports on the navigation tree.
From the View All Reports page, you can filter the available reports by Category or keyword Filter.
Report Format allows the user to select various formats for reports. The Report Format will always default to PDF, but can be changed to other formats if needed. Other file formats include Excel (XLSX), Rich Text (RTF), Word (RTF), or Plain Text (TXT).
Report Delivery allows you to choose to receive notifications via email. Emails will be sent to the currently logged in user.
The Report Delivery drop-down will provide 3 ways to receive your Report.
1. None - This option will not send a notification of completion of Report processing. When the Report is ready, you will have the choice to Download or View Report immediately.
2. Email w/o Link - This option will send you an Email notifying you that your Report is ready. Your Report can be found in Report History.
3. Email w/ Link - This option will send you an Email containing a Link to your Report. Clicking the Link in the email will open your Report in the browser or download it, if you've chosen an Excel format. The Link in the email will remain valid and will always be available. However, the Link is user specific and cannot be shared with others, except for Admin users who can use all Report Links. If you are not logged in to Aeries when you click on the Link, you will be directed to the Login screen, after which your Report will open. In any case, your reports are always available in Report History.
Student Group will limit the Report to the students in the group. This will have the same effect as a KEEP/SKIP statement.
Note: once the Report Delivery option is changed, it is saved for use on any reports run in the future. This option can be changed at any time from the View All Reports page, but also at the time of running various reports. All options provide the choice to immediately view your report in the browser or download it.
When selecting reports to run, various options will display depending on the report.
Tip: Reports can also be added to Favorites for easy access in the same way that pages can.
Running Reports for Groups of Students
There is also an option to run many reports filtered to specific Student Groups. Student groups can be set up by school sites when there are specific student characteristics that need to frequently be filtered, such as all students in a specific program. To run a report specific to a Student Group, select the appropriate group from the Student Group drop-down on the View All Reports page. When you select a group from the drop-down box, the report will be generated reflecting only the students defined in the Student Group.
A message box will appear in the top left corner of the window alerting the user that students are being skipped.
Many reports will also honor KEEP/SKIP query statements that are in place when the report is generated, limiting the report results to only the queried students.
The Report History feature is located on the View All Reports page and is accessed by selecting the Report History tab at the top of the form.
Report History allows you to access and view reports that the user has generated previously. Each report that is run by a user is archived and can be accessed at a later time on this tab. The form allows a date range to be selected to filter all available reports. When the desired report is located, select the report and it can then be viewed, printed or downloaded/saved.
