Contest Qualifiers Report

Follow

Applies to: Plus & Enterprise Plans

Beyond regular reporting activities the most important function of the Contest Report page is to provide the Admin with the option to create a Contest Qualifiers Report. With this report they can select the Winners of the Contest from the list of Learners that have qualified, after which the Admin can choose to send out a Winner Message to each one.

Once it has been generated this Report can be further customized to provide data on any of the following Contest Qualifier parameters:

Element Description
Date Added This column displays the date that the Learner qualified for the Contest by completing the required Course(s) or reaching the Contest's mandatory number of Credits.
Email Address § This column displays the email account of the Learner qualifying for the Contest. This is the address where both the Completion Message and Winner Message are sent by the LMS in addition to being sent the Message Board located on the Learner's Dashboard.
First Name § This column displays the first name of the Learner qualifying for the Contest.
ID This is a unique alphanumeric code generated by the LMS which simultaneously identifies the individual Learner and the specific Contest they have qualified for. This piece of information is generated by Absorb once the Learner has successfully qualified.
Last Name § This column displays the last name of the Learner qualifying for the Contest.
User ID This is a unique alphanumeric code generated by the LMS to identify the individual Learner only. This piece of information is generated once a new Learner is first added to the LMS.
Username § This is the name-based identity used to distinguish each individual Learner as they are added to the LMS.
Winner § This column displays the binary 'Yes'/'No' status of whether or not the qualifying Learner in the Report has been selected as a Winner by the Admin.
Won On § This column displays the date that the Admin set the qualifying Learner's 'Winner' status directly above, to 'Yes'.

Actions

When working with an open Contest Qualifiers Report the Actions available for use by the Admin are:

Element Description
Back This button will return the Admin to the previous Contest Report page. This option is provided to the Admin up until a qualifying Learner has been selected. As soon as a Learner is chosen this option is no longer displayed and the buttons below automatically become available instead.
Select As Winner This button will add the value of 'Yes' to the Winner column of the Report for any qualifying Learners selected by the Admin as a Winner. As soon as this is triggered by the Admin the LMS will automatically send out the Winner Message to that Learner, if the Winner Message toggle in the Messaging Tab has been activated. However, if the Admin has not activated this toggle, no message will be sent out and the Learner will not be informed that they have won the Contest. In this case, the Admin will have to manually message the Winner(s) by using the Message User button below
Unselect As Winner This button will remove the value of 'Yes' to the Winner column of the Report for any qualifying Learners selected by the Admin. Doing so will not inform the Learner that they have now been deselected as a Winner as no message will be sent out by the LMS. In this case, the Admin will again have to message the Learner(s) manually by using the Message User button and inform them of the change.
Edit User This button will redirect the Admin to Edit User page for the qualifying Learner they have selected in the Report. This can be used for editing the Learner's profile and also viewing their learning history or transcript.
Message User(s) This button will redirect the Admin to the Compose Message page already with a message pre-addressed to the qualifying Learner(s) they have selected in the Report. This can be used for coordinating with the Learner on the administering of Rewards or whatever use the Admin deems necessary.
Activate Users ‡ This button will render the selected qualifying Learner(s) as 'Inactive' and corresponds to the 'Is Active' switch as provided in the Info Tab on the Edit User page.
Deactivate Users ‡ This button will render the selected qualifying Learner(s) as 'Active' and corresponds to the 'Is Active' switch as provided in the Info Tab on the Edit User page.
Change Department ‡ This button will allow the Admin to alter the Department to which a qualifying Learner(s) belongs and also corresponds to the 'Department' drop down menu as provided in the Info Tab on the Edit User page.
Enroll Users ‡ This button will load the selected list of qualifying Learners and add them into the report on the User Enrollments page so the Admin can determine what LMS items the Learners have or have not started, completed, passed, etc.
Delete Users ‡ This button will permanently remove selected qualifying Learner(s) from the LMS (which the Admin will be prompted to confirm). Any Learners deleted here cannot be recovered.
Deselect This button will clear any qualifying Learner selection(s) made by the Admin from the Report.

(‡ - Action options available once multiple Learners have been selected.)
