With Beacon now connected to Campus Labs Core Data many more demographic fields are now avalible. Over the summer we will be incrementally adding fields to the Student Report as well as offering additional options to filters for groups and reports. Below are some examples of the new fields that will be displayed on a Student Report as well as filters (where applicable).
|Anticipated Graduation Date
|Date of Birth
|Foreign National Status
|Institution Entry Term
|Preferred Email Address
|School of Enrollment
How do I know if my institution is alreadying using the Core Data import files?
Connect with your Campus Labs consulant and they will be able to let you know if you are already using the Core Data import files.
Does my institution need to make the transition from the current import files we are using to the Core Data import files?
Your institution can continue to import the Beacon User/Demographic file as you always have. If your institution would like to take advantage of the expanded set of demographic fields then a transition to Core Data would be nessesary. If you are intrested or have more questions about how to make that transition reach out to your Campus Labs consultant.
Does our institution have to display information for all of these fields?
Campus Labs will only display the information about a student that has been imported into our system. If there is information that your institution does not want to diplay on the Student Report leave that field blank on your import. Next to that field on the Student Report we will then display "(No Data Supplied)".
