In this release Captivate Prime supports Training Report which allows Administrators to download training details and its associated metadata like author, published date, skills, Catalog labels etc.
On the Admin app, click Reports > Custom Reports > Excel Reports > Trainings Report.
You can download reports for the following:
In the Advanced Options section, the following options are available:
After selecting the filters and clicking Download, you will receive a notification to download the report in CSV format.
The report will have the following fields:

, Format, Status of Training, Skills, Author, Last Published Date, Last completed Date, Instructors Enrollment Count, Started count, Completion count, Avg L1 score, Avg L2 score, Avg L3 score, L1 responses received, L2 responses received, L3 responses received, Catalog labels & Tags.
In this release of Captivate Prime, an Administrator can customize the columns exported in a Learner Transcript report. Admins, Custom Admins, and Managers can configure the columns before exporting the report.
On the Learner Transcripts dialog, click Advanced Options. In the Configure Export Format section, choose the columns that you want to export.
The Administrator can set an account level preference to export the Learning Transcript in the following time zones:
The Learner Transcript downloaded using Jobs API also downloads the data in the selected timezone.
There is no change expected in the Learner Transcript by default immediately after the release. Administrators can configure this setting from Admin > Settings > General > Report Timezone.
There is a new account-level setting for Learner Transcript for Administrator, Custom Admin, Manager, and Learner. This option, by default, is set to the UTC time.
On the other hand, for Managers, there is an option to download the Learner Transcript based on the timezone that he/she had selected in the profile settings.
If the Manager enables this option, the timezone is picked from the one set in the profile settings page, shown below.
Note: For a new Manager, the Timezone checkbox is disabled.
The Administrator can view the user report of the peer account. The parent account admin can request to access the report and once the peer account admin accepts this, the parent admin will be able to view the number of registered users in the peer account and will be able to download the user report for peer account.
For more information, see Download user report for peer accounts.
In this release, we've added support for accent and diacritical characters in table columns. The following are the areas of impact:
The following are the changes in the Learner Transcripts fields.
A warning message is displayed to the Instructor when approving a submission for a learner who hasn't made a submission.
A warning message is displayed- Submission file is not available. Please confirm if you want to still go ahead with the approve/reject action.
In the Immersive view, a Learner can now see a pop-up of L1 feedback form upon completing a course and Learning Program. The L1 feedback auto pop will appear only if Admin has set up the configuration accordingly.
You can now increase the frequency for importing users for all connectors that support importing of users. Contact your CSAM for more details.
When creating a Certificate, or Job Aid, there is an additional field Duration.
The Administrator or Author can specify the duration, which gets used as a filter and appear in the report.
When adding an external certification, you can specify the duration (in minutes). For more infrmation, see Certifications.
You can specify the duration while adding an activity module in a course for activity type File Submission and xAPI-based modules. For more information, see Courses.
When adding a Job Aid, you can also specify the duration. For more information, see Job Aids.
After adding an audio or video content, you can also specify the duration. However, if you do not specify any value in the Duration field, the duration will be equal to the duration of the uploaded content. For more information, see Content Library.
Captivate Prime allows Administrators to export L2 Quiz score report. This report contains Quiz score and Score percentage for each user. In this release, we are modifying the header of existing column and adding new columns for better readability and analysis.
We’ve added the following columns:
Note: The column Quiz Score percentage is calculated as the percentage value of ‘Quiz Score’ and ‘Quiz Score Max’.
We plan to remove the column ‘Total User Score/Quiz Score’ from the next release as all the information is now available as separate columns for better readability and analysis.
Captivate Prime provides you with FTP and Box connectors to help transfer of data to/from Prime. The storage provided by these connectors is meant to be an intermediate temporary buffer space between Prime and an external system, and they are not supposed to be used as storage for the CSV files that flow between Prime and the external system. In addition to User data import, these connectors are also used internally by other connectors that we ship for Adobe Connect, BlueJeans, getAbstract, Harvard Manage Mentor, and Zoom.
In this update of Captivate Prime, we will be enforcing the following policies with respect to how long the data (CSV files) used in the context of various workflows are retained, before they are auto-deleted. It is important to take note of this, especially if you have written upstream applications (for data that is inbound to Prime) or downstream applications (for consuming outbound data from Prime). It is also a good idea to back up any files that you already have in Box/FTP folders, if you need them for reference or any other purpose.
The new data retention policy is as follows:
