In Slate, queries can do far more than generate reports. The query tools will allow you to organize, process, and track applications throughout the review process. The Graduate School has set up a number of departmental queries to meet your needs, but you can also create temporary “Quick Queries.” If your department requires alterations to a departmental query, contact Lauren Liston (lpalerm@ncsu.edu). For in-depth explanations of query functions, see the below tutorials. We also provide an overview of the New Submission Notification Report, a query that is sent to your department as an automated email.
