Workshops are instructor-led sessions during which participants may ask questions and get assistance with actual work. During the sessions, the instructors may also focus on common issues or new functionality. Completion of the Learning Path for the responsibility and access to the system is required prior to attending a workshop. You may find these workshops by entering “Workshop” in the search field when searching for a course.

The Discoverer Workshop is 3-hour workshop, spontaneous in that its materials are provided by you in the form of your own reports. The Integrated System’s reports team has created and tested hundreds of reports covering requirements for audit and effective management. However, If you need some data combination for which no report currently exists, bring your specific questions and existing reports to this workshop for collaboration with other experts. Attendees must have the active responsibility, UVA ODS Specialist, and at least 3 months practice using Discoverer Plus.
