alert icon   Please note: Our upcoming schedule is still on Thursdays other than the third Thursday of the month, from 1:30-3:00 pm. The locations will be:

  • 1/9 - 1/23: 4-144
  • 1/30: 4-253 Note: This is a one-time room.
  • 2/6 - 5/28: 5-232

Staff members are available for hands-on help during this time.

This is a drop-in session and no appointment is necessary. You are welcome to drop by to discuss problems you might be having with a report – just bring along anything needed in order to discuss your report, including your Duo device. Also, you can meet other Reporting users and share information and tips with them.

On the third Thursday of the month, the format will change slightly. A training session will take the place of the normal drop-in session. Sign-up is not required for the Third Thursdays Training series, but is suggested as space is limited.
