Configure Activity Overview - by Semester Report
The Activity Overview - By Semester Report lists Activities by academic term and can be run to provide answers to such questions as:
- How many active faculty members exist for Spring 2016 - Fall 2016, and what percentage logged in?
- How many Student Supervision activities were reported within the College of Business for Spring 2016 - Fall 2016?
- What is the total number of Credit Hours, Teaching Load and Student Credit Hours for each college and for each department within the college for Spring 2014 - Fall 2014?
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.
