What's New in Boise State Business Intelligence?

There haveĀ been significant enhancements to the new Boise State Reporting site, designed to streamline your experience and provide more comprehensive notifications. These improvements aim to make your interactions with the platform smoother, ensuring you stay informed and efficient in your reporting endeavors.

Key Enhancements

Consolidated Notifications:

We have combined outages and announcements into a unified subscription feature. Subscribing now ensures that you receive notifications for both reporting outages and announcements. This consolidated section, aptly titled “Notifications,” offers a centralized hub for staying updated on critical information.

Favorites Feature:

Introducing the Favorites feature! You can now mark reports on Boise State Reporting as favorites, and these will be conveniently displayed under the Favorites section on the homepage. This enhancement eliminates the need to navigate through the site or bookmark pages, providing quick and easy access to the reports you frequently use.

Direct Link to Data Cookbook:

Accessing the Data Cookbook is now more straightforward. A direct link to this valuable resource has been included under the tools menu for your convenience, ensuring easy reference and utilization.

Alphabetical Sorting:

To enhance navigation, subcategories and reports on individual tabs are now sorted alphabetically. This thoughtful organization promotes a more intuitive and efficient browsing experience.

Oracle Reporting Training Opportunities

BIRS hosted a three part training for OAC and Data Visualizer. The recordings are available by selecting the BI Tools Training on the BIRS Resources and FAQ page.

We are continuing the monthly drop-in training sessions. Our team members will be available for 2 hours once a month, providing you with the opportunity to seek assistance, ask questions, and resolve any issues you may encounter while working the University BI reporting tools. Please email if you would like to attend a drop-in session.
