Absorb provides many powerful and flexible reporting options within the Admin User Interface (UI). All LMS data is viewed through familiar and intuitive reports. Admins are able to view, share, and update reports depending on their needs, and how they wish to manipulate the data outside of the LMS.
All of the standard reports within Absorb follow the same mechanics and layout in order to provide a consistent experience. For a full overview on how standard reports work, and the actions that you can take on them, we recommend reading the Absorb's Report Interface article.
While Absorb provides powerful and flexible reporting options within the Admin User Interface (UI), there may still be times where your organization requires additional reporting options. Data Exports can offer information that can be formatted and delivered to meet your specific needs in either CSV or TXT file formats.
Most fields that you can view in the LMS can be included in an export. We recommend reading our Data Exports article which covers this topic in detail. If you still have questions or want to get started, we recommend contacting your CSM.
While data exports can be very valuable in providing information in a way that you may not be able to accomplish with standard reports, Business Intelligence provides an ever better experience. We understand that every business is unique, and that reporting needs aren't always met with a one-size-fits-all option.
The Business Intelligence Service looks to improve the reporting experience by augmenting the capability of standard, existing reporting elements, directly in the Admin UI. With virtually no limits to the way your data can be compiled, and the ability to custom build reports and dashboards directly within Absorb, Business Intelligence provides a bespoke solution for your reporting needs.
For more information, we recommend reading the Business Intelligence Reporting article. It outlines everything included and features a video demonstration of functionality available with the service. You can also contact your Account Manager or submit a support ticket if you are interested in adding this service.
