    Reporting and Beyond [HALF-DAY]

    Effective use of analytics is imperative to running a clean MasterControl system, improving your processes and avoiding compliance issues. In this workshop, you will learn how to use the new MasterControl Analytics, introduced in version 11.7 and improved in version 2018.3, to solve problems and mitigate risk. This exciting workshop will explore what can be achieved with the new Analytics and help you develop more practical and comprehensive reports. Attend this workshop if you would like hands-on experience with the new reporting engine and to learn how to leverage Analytics to gain insight into your business.

    Hands-On Troubleshooting [FULL-DAY]

    Having working knowledge of a system does not necessarily qualify you to troubleshoot issues in that system. This interactive workshop will examine scenarios of the most common issues encountered by MasterControl users. By practising how to identify, diagnose and resolve these issues in the workshop, you will leave with the skills to implement the same methodology in your own MasterControl environment. Attend this workshop if you want to gain a better understanding of how to troubleshoot MasterControl.

    Intro to eForms [HALF-DAY]

    Going electronic with eForms is a wonderful way to make your life easier and simplify your company's processes. However, before that can happen, eForms must be created and managed correctly. To new users, this can seem overwhelming. In this introductory workshop, MasterControl experts will help you create your own forms and teach you how to manage roles and users. Attend this workshop if you're new to using eForms and want to learn best practices for working with eForms in MasterControl.
