Argos is “Business Intelligence” software that allows you to pull Banner data using a pre-made report. You can pull this data into PDF or CSV format, depending on how the report was created. For example, one can use Argos to pull a list of students who meet some criteria, or a list of courses for a certain term.
To request access to Argos, please see the security article here: https://emersonit.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4417596057883.
