This video is an old SPIDER Overview video! It is a recording of a webinar for new data contacts that was held in July 2015 and is just over an hour long. You can “scrub” to topics where you would like more information. You can skip the Attendance Module as that was replaced by the Service Delivery modules above on 11/15/17.
Global Reporting Introduction Video – This is just a quick overview of the main features of this new application released on October 1st. The whole video is about 15 minutes long and covers a lot but you can stop and pause and take in only what you want. More training will be provided (face to face, PDFs, peer to peer) in the next few months. Enjoy!
NOTE – the Global Reporting application requires that the IE9+ Compatibility View (CV) be turned OFF and SPIDER needs it to be BLUE or ON). Please watch the Compatibility View video below if you are uncertain about this feature. (DDS users CORE-CT adds ct.gov to a CV list, it must be removed for Global Reporting.)
