Setting Up My Course Needs

J1 Desktop Setup


All of the Advising Trees must be completed, the Degree/Aim Cross-Reference table must be populated, and Aims must be appropriately assigned to students in order for all students to use this feature.

Several features allow the user to create custom reports that the user can see from within the feature. During installation, several reports (InfoMaker .pbl files) are copied into default directories on the web server that these features access. Update the location of the customized reports for the My Course Needs feature.

  1. Open the UI Configuration window.

  2. In the Category Name drop-down list, choose Advising.

  3. Locate the row for ReportPBLPath. In the Value column, enter the location of the .pbl for the Advising module.

  4. Locate the row for AdvisingWorksheet. In the Value column, enter the name of the report in the .pbl for the location you indicated. 

  5. Save.
