To request an ad hoc (custom) report of data from Advance, the University’s alumni/donor database, you will need access to ReportWriter.Net. ReportWriter.Net is a reporting tool created and maintained by the Information Management (IM) unit of Advancement Services.
If you have not had Advance training or are a first-time user of our services, please complete the following three steps:
- Request an Entrust Token from UWIT if you don’t already have one.
- Fill out the Alumni-Donor Database Access form, checking the box for “Ad Hoc Report” or “GAR Report” according to your need under the heading, “I have requested the following access to Alumni/Donor Data,” and either FAX it to us at 5-8911 or send it via campus mail to Box 359504 immediately.
- Upon receipt, ATS will send you notification that you have been added to the online Canvas course on Confidentiality of Alumni/Donor Data. After you complete the course quiz, we will notify you once your ability to receive/run reports is activated.
You will be notified by Advancement Training & Support when you have been granted access to ReportWriter.Net.
If you would like to request a report without gaining access to ReportWriter.Net, please email the IM Report Group directly. Note that these types of requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis and are typically only granted to people in partner organizations who are not employees of the University of Washington.
