About Ad Hoc Reports

Report access is based upon a user's permissions. For example, a provost might have permissions to access all reports at the university level and below, while deans might only have access to reports for their colleges.

With Ad Hoc Reports, users have the ability to craft their own reports to show specific information that is most relevant for them. After spending the time to create the exact report that is desired, users can set them as quicklinks for easy access at a later date.
