Argos Resources and Training
Training as an Argos Data-Block Designer, Report Writer, and Report User is available through several channels including on-demand videos provided on the Evision’s website and scheduled in-person training provided by ITS.
Datablock creation, report creation and report viewing requires access to data from Banner. If you have recently started at Middlebury, or have changed roles or jobs, please talk to your supervisor to confirm you have the right Banner data access.
