The RMP Connect Reporting Suite allows you to run analysis on a range of criteria, such as letting you know which types of interactions you have met your applicants or hires at (e.g. you met 215 of your applicants at your Bristol Presentation).
To create a new report, you need to do the following:
- Go to the RMP Connect Dashboard.
- Select "View Reports" on the left menu.
- You then need to select the green "Create New Report" button (this will either be in the middle or the top left depending on if you have saved reports or not).
The first step is to select a bar chart report or a table. Bar chart reports do also include a table below, so you have both options.
You then have the option to name your report and label the axis, this is particularly useful if you are planning to export the report to a PDF, image or are intending to save it for later use.
The next step is to select your report type from the options. You can run the following types of report:
Interaction Type - This type of report allows you to look at the types of interaction that were most popular in terms of attendees, but also most successful in terms of where you met your applicants or hires at. For example, you will see how many applicants were interacted with at Careers Fairs, Networking Evenings, Register Your Interest, Times Top 100 and so on.
Interaction Event - This type of report allows you to dig down further into an interaction type, to see at which events had the most attendees, but also which events you met your applicants or hires at. For example, you can see how many applicants were interacted with at the Bristol Networking Evening or Manchester Networking Evening.
Student - Student reports allow you to drill down in the demographics of your Talent Pool, breaking down characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, course and university from specific locations, events and interactions.
Cost Based Reports - This type allows you to look at the return on investment of your events as a whole and also your individual events. You can see the cost per attendee or cost per applicant/hire that you met at each of those events.
Once you select one of the above options, you then have the option to filter your base set of data. You can filter by students (demographic's such as gender, course, country, graduation year, etc), interaction types (hired students, applicants, students that you met at Careers Fairs) or interaction events (filter the data by a specific event, e.g. Bristol Presentation).
When you apply a filter to the base set of data, only students that meet that criteria will appear in the report.
You can apply more than one filter to your base set of data, if you would like to look at your applicants but from a particular year group for example.
To add a filter to your base set of data, you need to do the following:
- Select your type of report.
- A green filter button will appear below, select "Add Filter".
- Select the type of data to filter from the dropdown e.g. Interaction Type.
- Type in the name of your interaction type, e.g. Hires.
- Hit the green "Save" button.
You then also have the option to add additional columns to your report, which can be really useful for comparing certain demographic against your original dataset. e.g. Number of female students that have applied from a certain event, against the overall number of applicants.
To add an additional column, you need to do the following:
- Select the green "Add Column" button.
- Select the type of data to filter from the dropdown e.g. Students.
- Select the demographic you wish you report on e.g. Gender.
- Add the value you wish to see, e.g. Female.
- Hit the green "Save" button.
The final step is to then sort and limit your results. You can choose to sort your results by A-Z, Z-A, High-Low and Low-High. You can also limit your results to the Top 25 or Top 50. These can be really useful when running reports that have the potential for a lot of results, such as a report on which courses your students study.
Once you been through the above steps, hit the green "Create Report" button to see your results.
