Interactive Reporting - Getting Started

The Interactive Reporting service provides a framework for organizing and presenting data in a range of formats, including detailed, summary, and historical data. It also provides an online repository of queries (the Workspace) to allow sharing of queries with access control. This Getting Started guide will assist a new user in obtaining access, choosing and installing a client, and logging into the Workspace.

Note: Interactive Reporting, including both the IR Workspace (web) and the Studio Desktop client, will be decommissioned on March 1st, 2019. Neither the web nor the desktop software will be available or supported after this date.

UW-Madison affiliates can find more information on alternative tools on the Office of Data Management and Analytics Services website.

Other UW System affiliates can find additional information, as well as a list of support contacts, on the UWBI Support website.
