Reports & Activity Aggregations

There are various reports and activity aggregators in Sedona which departments can use to aggregate data.  Details of these reports can be found in the Sedona Guidelines.  The data which build these reports are entirely dependent upon data within Sedona being complete, current, and correct.  Member statistics might be a helpful report, but if the faculty data are inaccurate, then the report is not helpful. 

With the Activity Aggregators, keep in mind that “Only participating,” excludes adjuncts and GTAs.  Most of the aggregators have a department-wide option which will produce a pop-up report that can be downloaded into Word, Excel, or PDF.
