Re: Concourse Filter Tutorial

Open up Concourse and click on the Help item. The drop down lists several guides. I think the Users Guide is the best one for use of filters.  Start at Chapter 2 Basic Functionality and read on down through the discussion of using filters.  For me, the best way to learn is to try different things and see how it works.  So read, try. If you have questions post your problem. Help is right here.

I'd like to see a tutorial on using filters when you're trying to print a report or just find information.

I would like to hear from Concourse users about what topics they would like to have explained in video tutorials. I am hoping to record tutorials for out customers. Let me know what you think.

Re: Atriuum reports in XML format

Won't CSV fail if a title contains a comma?  Example: Ah-one, ah-two!

Atriuum has two ways to export a report. You can "export report as text" or you can "export report as CSV". CSV export behaves exactly as the "Export Report As Text" but delimits the results with commas instead of with tabs.

Concourse has a feature that prints reports in XML format. Is this feature available in Atriuum?

Thanks, Allison, for your words of encouragement for church librarians to attend library workshops.  Just one correction--the meeting at my church will be on Saturday, November 2, and it is located in Decatur, AL.  It has been a pleasure, Allison, to have you work with libraries in the areas of Concourse and Atriuum.  Hope to see many of you at these workshops.  Allison, Bill, Bev and I will be at all of those workshops mentioned.

I hope many of you in Tennessee will be attending the workshops that are offered in Maryville (Sept. 14), Memphis (Sept. 21), and Murfreesboro (Sept. 28)this month. Bill Jones and I are presenting sessions on Concourse (Bill) and Atriuum (me). We had a great turn out in Cleveland this past Saturday. 

Those that live in Alabama need to be sure to sign up for Shocco Springs Sept. 16 - 18, or for North Alabama Church Library Workshop on Nov. 3, at Eva Nell's church in Athens, AL. There will be Concourse and Atriuum sessions at both of these events.
