Getting Started Guide

New Planners and Reporting Only Users, please review the CalPlanning Getting Started Guide

Office Hours

Office hours are available so that you can ask specific questions about CalPlanning and Smart View. Request a session and indicate the topic for which you are requesting support. Office hours are an opportunity to get individual support for a specific challenge your unit is facing; they are not a replacement for training. 

Learning Format

Our curriculum of CalPlanning and Smart View courses using a blended learning model. Courses begin with self-study using online “books” divided into chapters supplemented with practice exercises and short videos. Courses culminate with a group session using Zoom in which participants will work on case studies in small teams to apply the material covered in the self-study.

The self-study materials are available on the website for everyone to use; they can be a helpful resource for those that have already completed the training and are looking for a refresher. See the page for the course you are interested in to access the self-study materials and job aids.
