Troubleshooting Report Errors Known Error: • If a student is dropped from a course and then enrolled in the same course the final grade will not print on the Individual Student Report. • Solution: Send request to Sondra to fix
Troubleshooting Report Errors Overlapping Enrolments: • The Fix Enrollments link will only work if the student is enrolled in overlapping courses. • Check also to ensure that the course Entry Date is before the Exit Date
Troubleshooting Report Errors Report Error: Reports will not open in your Report Queue. This is an Adobe Reader error. Solution: Submit a Helpdesk ticket and Foxit Reader will be installed on your computer which will allow you to read the PDF.
