Generating reports is an essential tool to reflect on productivity and prioritize workflows. However, running reports within the ArchivesSpace staff interface has been a challenge that often produced inadequate results. Many community members have established a variety of highly technical and creative workaround to generate reports externally from the staff user interface. However, development persisted on to improve the functionalities of reports within the native application.
Jr. Software Developer Sarah Morrissey (ArchivesSpace) has focused on refactoring and improving how reports can be generated in ArchivesSpace. In this webinar, Sarah will demonstrate the improvements in reports functionalities, and also provide some insight on the technical challenges she faced.
Sarah worked in close collaboration with ArchivesSpace Technical Lead Laney McGlohon as well as the ArchivesSpace User Advisory Council Reports sub-team. The Reports sub-team advances the ArchivesSpace reports module by defining reports conceptually and technically, documenting how to use the reports module, and suggesting enhancements to the report processes. Recommendations made by the sub-team are available on the wiki: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AC/pages/101847232/Reports+Subteam+Recommendations+for+Predefined+Reports
Please feel free to bring any questions you have.
