Report Tool Introduction

 

The Report Tool allows members to build, access, and share summary results from the TUPS, TIM-LP, TIM-O, and TIM-R tools. Reports can be viewed as webpages or formatted for printing.

Access the Report Tool from the Main Menu page. You will find the Report Tool toward the bottom of the left menu bar.

Figure 1. The Report Tool link is the second from the bottom.

 

Within the Report Tool you will see two tabs. The first is View a Report. This is a list of all reports made by you along with reports made by others that have been shared out to your role. Click the title of any report to view it as a set of webpages.

Each report also includes a version formatted for printing that is accessed by clicking the Print Version tab toward the bottom of the menu within each report.

The second tab in the Report Tool menu is called Build a Report. This allows you to build any of the four types of reports. You will be able to select the type of report, the audience for your report, the time frame, and both the roles and locations to include.

Keep in mind that the Report Tool produces summary reports. For more complete analysis, you should download the raw data from within the Admin Center and import it into either a TIM Tools Excel template or your preferred statistical program.
