Cognos Refresher Training Mon 20 Jul 2020   14:30 CANCELLED

We are not currently able to offer this as a classroom course but are offering a virtual alternative, you would be very welcome to book onto the Q&A webinar (session 2) if you would like to brush up on your skills.

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.

This welcome session is for staff based in Greenwich House, will introduce you to the practicalities working in the building and the resources available to you.
