GAR Report Module Block

Purpose: The GAR Report Module block is a collection of report blocks that helps LSC funded agencies easily see summary data for GAR reporting.  Note: These blocks use underlying system reports that must be created prior to their use.  

Cost None. It may need to be enabled by Legalserver.  File a ticket (Help menu > Support Request) if you don't see the GAR Report Module block on your site.  Note:  This block is still in beta testing and not yet released publically.

Using the underlying report, the GAR blocks display the information in a way that makes it easy to transport that information into the GAR report.  The following blocks are currently available: 
  • Office staffing (which can be used for both staff and volunteers)
  • Additional Information Relating to Cases
  • Demographics
  • PAI Open cases
  • Staff Open Cases
  • Staff Closed cases (which can also be used for PAI closed cases). 
Reports created for use with this block must contain all the information needed for the display and must also be made available as a System Report and associated with the type of System report it relates to.  This is done in the "Attributes" section of reports.



Multiple reports can be attributed to the same System Report type so that the module can be used separately for both reports (such as staff vs volunteer or Staff vs PAI cases).  The module is then configured by Report Type and Report.


Here are some sample views of how the block report types will display:

Office staffing (which can be used for both staff and volunteers)


Additional Information Relating to Cases (tip: you may need more than 1 report and add this twice)

Demographics

Other services

PAI Open cases

Staff Open Cases

Staff Closed cases (which can also be used for PAI closed cases)


Note:  In addition to these visualizations, you can create additional reports using the transformer to view summaries for other GAR reports, such as Other Services and Categories of Attorney involvement.  For information on how to use the transform, see http://help.legalserver.org/home/reports/lookup-transform-and-export-index.

Tip:  Create a new Home page profile view with Tab Starts showing each view separately to decrease loading times.
