Filter Management Information Dashboards by academic year/time period
We would like to propose that a filter is added to the MIS dashboards to allow running reports for a single academic year or time period. Currently filtering by academic year is only available on the "Edit Activity" dashboard.
We had high hopes for the new MIS dashboards, which offer graphical, easy to use reports. However, as things stand, we are unable to use them because many of the dashboards report on all unarchived lists within the system, rather than allowing filtering to the current academic year lists. As it is our current policy to retain the last 4 years of reading lists before archiving them, this means the data displayed covers multiple years making it less meaningful.
The ability to select a specific academic year/time period would provide greater flexibility and would benefit other institutions with similar policies on archiving.
