This 3-hour workshop is for new and experienced users of the EPSCoR Reporting Core (ER Core). The focus will be on establishing a community of users and providing new users the opportunity to benefit from the experience of established users. Participants will work with a "development" ER Core to learn how to navigate the system, enter content and view and download data into reporting templates. New users will complete a process to clarify for their technical team members the configuration parameters appropriate for their own jurisdiction. Discussion with experienced users will include use of the system for project management beyond reporting, training needs, and options for managing users.
