Join Lynda.com Staff for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the available reports, part of Getting Started as a Lynda.com Administrator.
- Let's explore some reporting options. Here, in the Reports tab, you have the option to pull a wide variety of reports about your users, to help you better understand the viewing patterns and history of your users. You'll notice that I don't have a lot of users input into my account yet. So, I don't have a lot of information populating here. But, as soon as your users start activating their Lynda.com accounts, numbers will start generating here. These reports do auto-update hourly.
To start, choose a particular group you want to view. Here, I have Everyone selected. And next to that, choose your date range. From the drop down menu, I've chosen the Last 3 Months. You can choose one of these other options or, choose a Custom Range. And then, simply click Update. And here, you have a high level view of reports generated in these pods. If you want to change around the view of your pods, just hover over one of the pods until this cross-hairs appears.
Click on it and move that pod to anywhere you wanted to change the view to. Release and it'll stay there. You can customize your dashboard here to your liking, or you can hover over a certain pod and click the "X" to hide that pod altogether. You can also choose to view reports of just specific groups. Say I just want to look at the New group over the Last 3 Months, and I'll click Update. Now, if you want to see a more detailed list of these reports, you may want to download your reports.
And you can do that right here, on the right. The Download Reports reflect the information that is selected in these data ranges. So, remember to make sure you have your desired group and time frame selected before you download a report. We'll look at how to do that next.
