The purpose of the Missing Item Report to locate those syllabi within your Concourse system that may be missing certain items. The mechanics of the missing item report are similar to that of the existing Item Report, in that information is extracted directly from the Concourse syllabus. The missing item can be from any component of the syllabus, such as Outcomes, Books, or Schedule Entries, though only one item can be reported on at a time.
In order to create a missing item report, click the Report dropdown in the main navigation and choose Missing Item. Select the radio button next to the item that you wish to view across syllabi and hit Next. A search page for courses will come up, and you can narrow down your search either by typing keywords or by entering specific criteria under Advanced Search. Once you have done this, click Search, and the list of courses matching your criteria will be displayed.
*Note: A Missing Item Report will not include unstructured (uploaded) syllabi, since uploaded syllabi by nature do not include Concourse syllabus items.
After reviewing the results, you can generate the report by checking individual results and clicking Selected Results or simply pressing All Results to include them all. Your missing item report will then appear, displaying a list of courses within your Concourse system that are missing the item you selected before running the report. You can also download a .CSV file to view an even more detailed report.
