New Resources Available

Find-a-Column Has New Features

Find-a-Column now includes searches for functions and datablocks.

Search for Functions - allows datablock designers to search for custom and banner delivered functions in the Banner Live (PROD) and ODSPROD databases. Using functions in datablock can simplify and standardize groupings in datablocks. Functions are a very useful resource.

Search for Datablocks - allows all Argos users to search for keywords in the titles and descriptions of written datablocks. This new feature will help users and datablock designers find datablocks to meet their needs. Try using this search before create brand new datablocks to find out if your datablock is already available or to get you started on designer a new one.

The new features are available from the Table Documentation > Find-a-Column link on the QDUG website. Select the feature you want to use and type in a keyword or phrase. A list of results will return with functions or datablocks that include that phrase or keyword.

For more information about this new feature contact QDUG Administration.

Time Status Code Change

A new time status will be added to student records beginning in July. The new time status reports 3/4 time status for Financial Aid and the National Clearinghouse. Please check you user folder for datablocks and reports reporting time status and make sure they will include 3/4 time status (code "QT"). Enrollment Services, Institional Research and QDUG will be reviewing all datablocks in the public folders for time status to make sure they are up to date. If you have any questions about the new time status code please contact QDUG Administration, Institutional Research, or Enrollment Services.
