Adobe Captivate Prime enables you to create varied reports to track, monitor, and control learner activities. Learners activities are tracked and captured automatically into the database. Manager and Administrator reports are generated from the database.
Reports generation process is similar for both Administrator and Manager. Managers can view reports corresponding to their subordinates whereas Administrator can view all organization-wide reports.
Reports are aggregated in a dashboard. A report has to exist inside a dashboard. A Default Dashboard exists by default in the reports page. Any report added by you moves into this default dashboard. To add reports to individual dashboards, use the drop-down arrow and choose Add Report. For more information on creating dashboards, refer to Dashboards section on this page.
- Click Reports on the left pane. Report summary page appears.
By default, at least three sample reports appear in the sample board tab. You can only view the sample reports to get an idea as to how you could create and customize them.
- On the Reports page, click Add. Report creation dialog appears.
- Click Save to complete creating a report. A sample report creation dialog is shown below for reference.
In Report Type, you can choose a pre-defined set of reports or choose custom. You can view the following reports as part of a pre-defined set of reports:
- Skills assigned and achieved
- Course enrolled and completed
- Effectiveness of courses
- Learning programs enrolled and completed
- Learning time spent per course
- Learning time spent per quarter
- Certification completion
You can use the above report types to generate reports of 300+ variations.
Report Name Type a title for your report.
Primary Y-axis Choose the first/primary criteria for your report from the drop-down options. For some of the selected criteria, you can choose one or multiple states from the States options. For example, for a course enrollment statistics primary criterion, the states can be completed, incomplete, enrolled, and so on. Primary range data is represented in the form of bar graphs in the report.
Secondary Y-axis Choose the secondary Y-axis criteria/range for your report from the drop-down options. For example, for a learning program enrollment option, choose one or multiple states from the States drop-down. Secondary range data is represented in the form of line graphs.
X-axis Choose the appropriate x-axis criteria for your report from the drop-down options. If x-axis is chosen as date, then an option to group your x-axis criterion by day, month, quarter, and the year is available.
Time Span (Date) Choose the appropriate option from the drop-down. Options: last one month, quarter, year, QTD (last 90 days), YTD (last 365 days), and the date range. If you choose a date range, provide From and To date as follows:
From Choose the starting date from which you would like to see the report.
To Choose the end date for your report.
Filters appear in Add report dialog at the bottom based on types of reports you have chosen. Some of the prominent filters are mentioned below.
Manager You can choose any one of the managers based on hierarchy. For some managers, there can be subordinate managers and multiple employees reporting to each subordinate manager.
Profile Choose the designation of your employee. It would help in viewing reports of employees based on their profile/designation. For example, computer scientist, engineer, and so on.
User Group Choose the user group based on which you want to filter the reports. Captivate Prime fetches the user groups defined for your account from Users feature.
Course You can filter your report based on any course by choosing them from the drop-down.
Above the legend for the graph, you can view a zoom box. Move cursor over it, click, and drag the crossbar over any part of the zoom box graph area, to zoom in.
You can view the secondary y-axis values in the form of a line across the graph bars. For example, in the above sample, you can see the values for Effectiveness in gray line across the graph.
User group reports
Track how user groups such as departments, external partners, and roles are performing in comparison with other user groups or against other learning objectives.
To generate reports based on user groups, choose User Group in the X-axis from the list of drop-down options as shown in the screenshot below.
Another Select drop-down appears next to X-axis with a list of user groups available for your account. In this drop-down, you can select one or multiple user groups.
Once you save and generate this report, if you selected multiple user groups, the report is generated with all the user groups represented in bar graph next to each other in x-axis.
This user group report enables you to compare the performance of one department/division/role against the other to evaluate their learning achievements.
You can also create customized user groups using Add users/user groups feature in Captivate Prime. After creating the user groups you can generate reports for those customized user groups with the help of a list of attributes like location, branch, and so on.
In X-axis, choose the user attribute option and select the attribute the from the select drop-down next to it. To create a customized user group report based on these attributes, you also need to choose the appropriate user group in the filter.
