About the webinar

The “Getting Started with ActivityInfo” webinars is a series of sessions addressed to new and older users of ActivityInfo who wish to get introduced to the platform or refresh their memory on key functionalities available. In addition to these sessions, we will be offering open office hours during which we can address specific aspects of the platform.

During this session, we look at data analysis and data visualization using the built-in tools in ActivityInfo. We discuss the key functionalities that enable you to combine your data, and we go over the different kinds of reports (such as pivot tables, charts and maps) that you can create using ActivityInfo. We also go over how you can consolidate multiple reports so that you can have a comprehensive overview of your data and your projects' progress or impact.

In summary, we explore:

  • A framework to guide your data analysis in ActivityInfo
  • Types of analysis you can do with your data in ActivityInfo
  • Reports you can create in ActivityInfo: pivot tables, charts and maps
  • How you can consolidate multiple reports using Notebooks and Dashboards
  • How you can disseminate your analysis (sharing and publishing your reports)
  • How to integrate ActivityInfo with other analytical software for further analysis (e.g. Power BI and R)
  • Examples of analyses you can do across various use cases

There will also be a Q&A session but for a complete hour of questions and answers please register to the ActivityInfo Office Hours: Reports taking place on March 1st.
