Learn more about how reports are managed at Ohio State and the tools available to meet your reporting needs.

This site focuses on reporting with enterprise tools with an emphasis on reports for key administrative processes using finance, grants, human resources, payroll, student and supply chain data. 

Tableau is the current supported enterprise reporting tool.


Published and Certified Enterprise Reports

Published reports are developed centrally and made available to report users with the appropriate security and access. 

This Tableau walkthrough video uses a PCard transaction as an example.


Ad Hoc Reports

You can use the enterprise reporting tools to produce ad hoc reports to meet your unique business needs. Ad hoc reports can be built from scratch or you can use the output from a published report to create a custom view. Regardless of the tool and method you use, you will need to have access to the data  and follow the university's Institutional Data Policy.
