Reporting & Analytics Training

Reporting & Analytics Training

Learning to leverage the Analytics tool within Handshake to gain access to your data and use it for your key outcomes

About this course

The Analytics feature in Handshake allows you to look at your data in a variety of ways. From pre-built dashboards and quick downloads to building multi-layered reports. This has been built with your needs in mind alongside a mini advisory board and your on-going feedback. This is a powerful tool to provide actionable data for your team and students.  

This training will provide you with comprehensive guidance to using all the Analytics tools available, understanding where you can access your data and how to choose the best method for your needs. 

In this course you will learn about:

  • Dashboards
  • Quick Downloads
  • Saved Reports
  • How to Build a Report
  • Best Practices

Who should take this course?
- anyone who will be charged with the task of reporting out on engagement and use of the platform and its tools (such as student/employer use/activation etc) for your campus. 
- this person should have access the manage "data" role to allow them to navigate this feature successfully.

Pro Tip:
We recommend looking at this course as "stacked training". Take off a little bit at a time, starting with the first video and leveraging that tool and then returning to explore the next and so on and so forth.
Do not go immediately to building your own report, much of the information you need is easily accessible at your finger tips through the templates provided, quick downloads and dashboard.
