The University of West Georgia Reporting Team provides reports and data extractions
to support reporting and data analytics by campus departments. This is done through
custom Banner reports, Argos data blocks, and Argos charts and reports.
We have developed and support over 1,000 custom Banner reports. Banner reports are
being converted and replaced by Argos data blocks.
Argos Data Blocks
Argos is a self-service reporting application used to simplify data retrieval from
our institutional databases. Reporting data is extracted from Banner and other applications
and organized into blocks of data or “data blocks” from which customized reports can
be generated. The major difference between Banner reports and Argos data blocks is
data blocks provide the user the ability to create their own charts and reports from
the data and perform their own customizations. These customizations can be done by
exporting the data to CSV and using Microsoft Excel, Tableau, Business Objects or
and data visualization tool the user chooses to deploy.
To request or modify Argos datablocks, manage Argos accounts, or ask further questions,
visit our Argos Self Service Request form here.
Argos Charts and Reports
Within Argos are also tools and capabilities for end users to create their own customized
charts and reports. A couple days of formal training is required for an end user
to become an “Argos Report Writer.” Additional training beyond “Report Writing” is
required for the user to be able to develop dashboards or even new data blocks within
