1:00 pm – 5:00 pm, Thursday, November 14 (2013), Anderson OIT Training Lab
In this course designed exclusively for American University Budget Officers, you will learn how to use the MicroStrategy Business Intelligence tool to conduct financial reporting. During the first hour of this course, you will learn about the BI interface and environment, and will practice running a Single Project Expenses Report by Date Range and a Multiple Project Detailed GL Expense report. You will manipulate data, filter content, and distribute existing reports without changing the report structure or content.
During the second portion of this course you will create these same two reports. You will learn about MicroStrategy reporting objects, including facts, attributes, and hierarchies. You will discover how to manipulate application objects such as metrics, templates, filters and prompts, and will practice applying custom formatting to BI reports. In addition you will learn how to create MicroStrategy documents.
Registration for this course is limited to American University Budget Officers.
