Did you notice that in the new year, some InfoPorte reports transitioned to Tar Heel Reports? Reports that were available as SAS VA inside of InfoPorte are being moved to Tableau as Tar Heel Reports. Here are some highlights about the Tar Heel Reports and the benefits to you:

  • Not all reports have transitioned to the new technology. If it was transitioned, you’ll see “Now in Tar Heel Reports” next to the report name.
  • The Tar Heel Reports are the same reports you had access to before with a notable change – security is different. You’ll see information for all departments, not just your own. Don’t worry, it’s easy to filter and save the filters you create.
  • When you click the name of a Tar Heel Report in InfoPorte a new window opens with a Sign in to Tableau Reports button.

Some Big Wins for You

  • Downloading is easier and more intuitive. You can even pick specific or all columns to download.
  • There are multiple formats to download to, including Image (png), Data (txt/csv), PDF and PPT.
  • Tar Heel Reports load quickly. It’s a noticeable difference from loading SAS Visual Analytics reports.
  • You can save your filters as Favorites. Filter for the department information you need, save your filter as a favorite “view”, and rename the view.  You can even make it your default report.
