What do I do when I try to login to Argos and it says “the user id ‘jdoe’ does not exist or has an incorrect password?

This can indicate that your domain/email password has expired. In some cases you may not be warned to change your password. Contact the Help Desk using helpdesk@asurams.edu and put in the Title “Determine if AD/Email Password has Expired”.

Once all of the data in the NewU (Banner C) becomes the single source of data for both campuses, what happens to the old Darton State Banner and Albany State University Banner?

The Darton and ASU Banner databases will remain in a read-only mode to allow end users to generate historical reports.

What happened to the Argos directory structure?

Over the past months the IT staff have been working endlessly to copy both Darton and ASU Argos information and place them in a single location. As the number of dashboards grew it was apparent that there was a lot of duplication. A new business process was established that called for the creation of a “Common” directory when duplicate reports are found. This directory contains reports that are needed by all users of Argos and that reports in the “Common” directory will not be copied to each of the “Department” directories.

How do I find a report if I don’t know the exact name?

The best way is to utilize the search feature within Argos. By entering in a keyword such as graduate you will see a list of dashboards and reports that contain that keyword. Then select the desired dashboard/report from the list.

Example: Search for the word “class” will provide you with something similar to the screenshot below.
