Manual for pulling reports

Hi- I am trying to find out if there is a manual that is available for directions as to how to create/pull reports. I have been trying to learn this for over a year and have not been successful. I have searched the Internet, asked questions, and have tried to plug through the learning videos. Nothing seems to have the information I am looking for and it has been incredibly time intensive to find answers. Any help is appreciated.

Hello @LMain,

 

Thank you for reaching out in the PowerSchool Community.  There are various types of report that you can run for PowerSchool Learning.  There are knowledge base articles that that you can find in the PowerSchool Learning Forum.  However, certain resources are only available to those assigned with the Technical Contact role at your school/district. 

 

We suggest working with the Technical Contact(s) at your school/district to help you access the PowerSchool Learning Forum Knowledge Base articles to view the different types of reports you can run.  Please let us know if you have any more questions. We will be happy to assist you!

I am not sure what you are asking.  I am trying to find a manual for the PowerSchool SIS administrative platform re: pulling reports so I have materials to read/refer to as I work with the system and attempt to maximize its potential.

@LMain  What you describe here can be obtained with a Quick Export of these fields and one DAT where XX is the expression. (unless you are using different custom fields):

DOB

grade_level

^(*period_info;XX;teacher_name)

Was anyone successful in finding a Manual for Reports? I need to get averages for number of live postings per month. I hope there is a report I can run, because now I run a daily report of my open positions and at the end of the month average them out. It's crazy!
