Generated Reports Overview

This article details the expected functionality of a portion of the refreshed Absorb LMS Admin Experience (AE). Click here to learn more about this free upgrade available to you.


The Generated Reports menu provides you with a list of all reports that you have previously exported or downloaded. It will also include reports that are automatically exported by your LMS using the Scheduled Report feature.

Previously generated reports that are listed in your Generated Reports menu can be downloaded again in the format that they were originally created in, and with all of the data that was captured at that time.

The Generated Reports menu is located in the Setup tab on the left side of your Admin Interface. From here, you can filter results based on a variety of data points.
