Enhanced reports, lists and exports

Please bring over the option of Query, Export and Reports fields from EE to the On products. They are far superior to what is available right now. I am trying to run projected enrollment numbers for the 2016/17 year and am having nothing but problems. An extremely upset and frustrated customer right now!

    There are so many reports in the system, but we need the ability to change what fields are in a report and how they display. Education Edge was much better with querying, exporting, and reporting. I've lost a lot of functionality in this area due to the shift to Education Management.

    We implemented Blackbaud Education Management this year. Overall, it has been a great experience and I love Blackbaud! But the lack of functional and comprehensive reporting has been my biggest disappointment and time waster. I agree that the ability to have RE style query and export options are critical to efficiently managing academic records. The manage basic and advanced list functions is, frankly, pretty awful. The analysis sky reporting is promising but very limited by the available insights. I just signed up for the insight designer trial and so far it seems excellent but disappointing that this is yet another additional fee for what is currently the only comprehensive reporting application.

    I would sell functional and vital organs for the ability to use an RE-style query and export in the K12 system!

    The ability to select and work with a group of records is extremely limited in ON compared with Education Edge. This applies in many aspects of the program, e.g. printing reports, report cards or schedules for a selected group of students.

    Yes, I have explored some of them. Although a step in the right direction
    they are still limited by data that is not available to select in the
    column list and to limitations in other sections of the system, medical and
    attendance in particular. But most definitely an improvement!

    Thank you,

    I'm curious if you have used the new SKY Reporting dashboards? These in conjunction with SKY Lists are where we are headed with these kinds of reports. We are also working on a drag and drop report creator that will allow you to create your own reports. We're not planning to implement queries per se, but I think you'll find these new options to be very useful. Thanks for bearing with us as we continue to improve these functions.

    At a minimum more sorting and filtering options are needed on almost all reports.  Why would you have a report that can't be filtered or sorted by the data it is reporting.  See this idea https://blackbaudk12.ideas.aha.io/ideas/K12CO-I-972 for an even better solution.  Let us build our own reports.

    I was SHOCKED to find that Blackbaud doesn't seem to offer Custom Reporting professional services for the "on" products. The "custom" reporting we got as part of our onBoard implementation wound up being minor hand-holding with the creation of some Advanced Lists- NOT anything like the custom Crystal Reports we got for EE. Not sure if this is 100% accurate, but the idea that the pre-canned reports, or worse, LISTS would meet every school's needs for reporting is disingenuous at best. Blackbaud KNOWS that most customers made good use of the Query, Export & Report features for their day-to-day operations in EE. We need something like those in "on"!

    I have also been extremely frustrated with the limitations of reports/lists and advanced lists. The Query function in EE is very user friendly and flexible.
