Adding an Option to Run a Report by a Student List

Modified on Mon, Jun 24 at 1:40 PM

When modifying a report writer report, you can set it up to run by student list (or staff list.)  This can be accomplished using the Report Parameters tab and the Filters tab.

For a student list, you just need “Student ID” added as a column. (For staff lists, you need the “teacher ID” as a column.)

On the Report Parameters tab, you need to add a new question in the “Add a Parameter” area.

Fill in the “Question to place on Run Report screen for user to answer” box (something like "Select List” etc.)  Select “List of User’s Student Lists” in the “User answers by” box.

And then add in a macro in the “Save the user's answer in a macro named” box. Click “Add This Question.”

Once it’s added, click on the FILTERS tab.

Select “Student ID” in the “Column” box. Select “Student ID is in this list” in the “Operand” box. Then enter the macro into the “Value” box and click “Add Filter.”

Your report should then filter on just the student list when selected when running.
