Argos Upgrade to Version 6

Argos is being upgraded to Version 6 on January 3, 2021. Use the below instructions to learn how to run and design reports.

How to Access Argos Web Viewer to Run Reports

Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge are the recommended browsers. 

  1. Missouri State Portal: 

Log in to https://my.missouristate.edu and go to Work Resources Tab. Here, you can access Web Viewer via one of two links: 

  • Under Admin Banner, you can click on Argos Web Viewer
  • Under Information Access, you can click on Argos Web Viewer

  1. Bear Intelligence: 

If you want to run reports from Bear Intelligence, just navigate to the Bear Intelligence page that holds your report and click on the report. It will take you to the report in Argos Web Viewer. 

  1. Bear Finance: 

If you want to run your budgeting reports from Bear Finance, simply navigate to the desired report and it will now take you to the Finance report in Argos Web Viewer. 

Argos Web Viewer is recommended for anyone who is running reports and not designing them. This can be run via any browser although we do not recommend Internet Explorer. You can use a Windows, Linux, or Mac computer to access Argos Web Viewer.

How to Access Argos Windows Client to Design Reports

Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge are the recommended browsers. Argos Windows Client will only run on Windows machines.

Missouri State Portal: 

Log in to https://my.missouristate.edu and go to Work Resources Tab. Here, you can access Web Viewer via one of two links: 

  1. Under Admin Banner, you can click on Argos Datablock / Report Design (Argos Windows Client)

  1. Under Information Access, you can click on Argos Datablock / Report Design (Argos Windows Client​​​​​​​)

When you click on the above links on or after January 4th, 2021, one of the following will happen: 

  1. If you already have the Evisions application launcher installed, Argos Windows Client will open in a few seconds. 

  2. If you do not have Evisions application launcher installed, the Evisions Argos page will be displayed but the Argos client will not launch even after 30 seconds. If this happens, click on the link that says, download & install the Evisions Application Launcher. This is what the page should look like: 
    Evisions application loading screen

    1. Once you click on the link to install Evisions Application launcher, a setup file will be downloaded. If you are using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you can find the downloaded file on the bottom left corner of your browser. The file name will be setup.exe. If you are using Firefox, it will prompt you to save the file. Click on Save File and the file will be downloaded, and a notification will be shown on the top right corner of your browser window. 

    2. Click on the setup.exe file and follow the instructions to install Evisions Application Launcher Setup. Once you install and finish the setup, you can go back to the Argos page and hit refresh or go to the my.missouristate.edu portal and try to launch Argos Windows Client again. This time, the application should not be stuck in the above screen for more than a few seconds and the application will be launched.

Important! If you do not have admin rights on your computer, you will not be able to install Evisions Application Launcher, in which case, you should request assistance from your IT support group in installing the application launcher.
