Mimsy XG – Showing it off: Introduction to reporting

David Forster Product Consultant

Often, you will need to share data with people who do not have access to your Axiell system and the best way to do that is in the form of reports. Using practical examples, this course covers the best ways to assemble, sort, and prepare data from within the system and then to use the external programs necessary to shape that data into a pleasing and readable form.

Once your data is in Mimsy XG, an extremely useful way to share or present your collection data is in the form of reports. Using Crystal Reports, the industry standard for reporting, this course provides participants with step by step instructions on how to efficiently grapple with large amounts of data and transform records in Mimsy XG into useful reports.

Curatorial staff, registrars, conservators, managers, exhibition coordinators, and anyone who needs to share information with non-Mimsy XG users, will learn the skills necessary to leverage their collection data in the form of handy and professional reports. Classes may be scheduled together or separately. Attendees in the Advanced Reporting class should master the concepts in the Introduction to Reporting class before enrolling in Advanced Reporting.
