Virtual - Cognos Introduction
Updated

Tue 23 Jun, Thu 25 Jun 2020

Description

Cognos is a reporting tool that utilises data from CUFS to provide users with additional reports and options. This introductory course is designed for new reporters - covering everything from running a report successfully as well as a number of useful tips and shortcuts.

Note: This course is mandatory in order to attend either of the following two courses below.

What this introductory course does not do is go through in detail the outputs of each individual report. Report outputs are explained in further detail in the courses above.

Target audience
  • Users of the Grants and/or General Ledger modules in CUFS who would like to access the improved functionality in Cognos
  • Users who wish to attend/booked for either:
GL Part 2: Reporting in the General Ledger
Grants Part 2: Grant reports in Cognos
Prerequisites

Your booking will remain 'provisional' until your Cognos access has been granted. Cognos access must be requested via your Departmental Key Contact. A list of Key Contacts can be found here; https://ufs.admin.cam.ac.uk/files/key_contacts.pdf
