The Development data sets are:

Development & Alumni Relationship Tool (DART) Data

Basic Reporting Needs

Use either DART01_Run or DART02_Run to generate a list of people with a specific set of characteristics or acquire characteristics about a list of people you have selected. For example, I want to see demographic data for Chicago Alumni who played Lacrosse and have a wealth capacity score of one million or more.

  • DART01_Run does not contain every field available in DART. It is intended to be a tool for easy querying. Run basic reports with options similar to EIS/FlexQuery from predefined reports/queries. Note: There are prompts/values that can be entered.
  • DART02_Run contains a larger data set than DART01_Run. For example, DART01_Run contains the current primary address. DART02_Run contains all addresses, including former addresses.

Advanced Reporting Needs

Use DART01_Create to run moderate to complex predefined reports/queries about people and/or organizations from DART (select U‐M employees in development or fundraising positions).

DART01_Create does not contain every field available in DART. It is intended to be a tool for easy querying. Create your own original reports/queries from scratch or modify predefined reports/queries choose from available data similar to options that were in EIS/FlexQuery.

Use DART02_Create to create your own original reports/queries from scratch or modify predefined reports/queries choose from complete set of data available from the DART Data Warehouse (select U‐M employees with highly complex reporting needs).

DART02_Create is a functional replacement for DV01 (legacy DAC BusinessObjects universe). This universe is intended for moderate to highly complex reporting and querying. This is the complete set of data available from the DART Data Warehouse.

For training and access requirements, see the DART Access & Training Descriptions for Development.

Availability

The data set is generally available 4 a.m.–11 p.m., except when the data is being refreshed. Refer to the Refresh Schedule for specific refresh times.
