To obtain a list of all the reports found in Wisenet and to read descriptions and field information you can use the Report Discovery section:

  • Either, view our Resources which detail useful reports for different scenarios
  • Or, Click to download the Report Catalogue:
    1. When you open the Excel Spreadsheet you can filter the information or search according to your desired results
    2. Enter the Report Number or Report Name in the next section

You can search by Report Category. Report Categories are a way of grouping or classifying various reports that generate similar information.

  1. In the Choose a Report section, Click on the Dropdown box and Select a category you think is most appropriate
  2. Browse through the list and click on the Report you wish to open

Or Search by Number or Name in the next Step.

This method is to be used if you already know the Report Number you need.

  1. Type the report number into the # field or first column, press enter
  2. The Report Name will now appear, click on the Report Name

This method is useful to use if you are not too sure what category the Report may fall under but want to use it like a Search Engine. i.e ‘Course Offer’, Course Count, AVETMISS, Audit Log, USI, Address etc

  1. In Column 2, type a keyword into the Name field, press enter
  2. All reports with this keyword will now appear, browse through the list
  3. Click on the Report Name that you wish to open

This method can be used if you know the field from Wisenet that you want the data from
