Sky Reporting in Blackbaud's education management portfolio
Data intelligence is an important aspect for any school, and with the help of SKY Reporting, Platform Managers have access to prescriptive dashboards that help improve data management and assessment of your overall performance and effectiveness. Lists enable schools to see the data with hundreds of filters and columns so you can get the data you need how you need it.
Your Platform Managers and any user with a role cloned from Platform Manager have access to additional menu items under “Analyze” in Blackbaud Student Information System™ (formerly onRecord®) and Blackbaud Enrollment Management System™ (formerly onBoard®).
- SKY Reporting with Prescriptive Dashboards released within core functionality of Blackbaud education management solutions in February, giving customers reliable ways to manage their user login activity and communication. All charts drill-in capability to SKY lists for more detail. These reports include charts for Login traffic, Student by Grade Level and Sender Persona for Inbox Messaging.
Blackbaud Enrollment Management System: SKY Reporting with Prescriptive Dashboards released within Blackbaud Enrollment Management System in February, giving customers reliable ways to manage their Admissions pipeline and Re/Enrollment Contract processes. All charts have drill-in capability to SKY lists for more detail. These reports include an Overview Funnel, YoY Inquiry and application Conversion Rates, and Candidate Decision analysis.
Blackbaud Student Information System: SKY Reporting with Prescriptive Dashboards released within Blackbaud Student Information System in February, giving customers insight into their Student Performance as measured by Average Grades. Average Grades can be analyzed by Department, Course, Teacher and Grade Level. Drill-in capability to SKY lists is included for more detail on student marking column grades.
We have enabled drill-in for detail into the User List, Student List and Candidate List from the appropriate dashboards. More features and filters will become available on the new Lists throughout the year. In monthly releases we expect additional graphs or dashboards to come available.
Some steps you can take to make sure your dashboards are configured to meet the needs of your school:
- Review roles that were cloned from Platform Manager and decide whether you want them to have access or not to each dashboard – by default they will get all dashboard menu items under Analyze.
- Review the Checklist Status in onBoard Settings > Checklist to configure your Admissions > Overview Funnel. You want to make sure to include in SKY Reporting the statuses that are major milestones through which most, if not all, applicants flow. Optional and parallel statuses do not reflect well in the funnel or measurements of Conversion Rates. Drag and drop the order to best reflect the order in which candidates move through the statuses.
