Key Expectations

What are the “Must Haves” in order for our customers to consider Reports to be vastly improved in Next Gen?

  • All Reports must honor KEEP/SKIP/Use of Student Groups 
  • Student Selector Options must be consistent among all reports
  • When report is run, first output the data set to the screen and allow customer to filter, edit, sort, etc. before worrying about rendering an actual report. 
  • After record set is configured properly, allow data to be extracted in many forms (.csv, .txt, .rtf, .xls, pdf, etc.)
  • Ability to output multiple records for a student pivoted out into on one line of data
