Description:  This presentation will cover the delivered options available to tailor the way the advisement report looks to students. We will start by introducing the way that the advisement report orders the requirement groups, requirements, and lines. Next, we will go over the print and reporting controls at all levels and demonstrate how they affect what is displayed to students. Finally, we will examine some case studies where the display of lines are deliberately suppressed to “hide” options from students.
