This article provides information on a portion of the Absorb LMS Admin Experience that has been upgraded to the refreshed Admin Experience (AE).  Click here to learn more about this free upgrade available to you.

Overview

The Course Summary Report provides an overview of your Absorb portal’s Curriculum, Online Courses, Instructor-Led Courses, and Course Bundles. 

This Report also provides the attributes Company Cost, User Cost, Company Time, and User Time. You can use these to provide a general representation of the time and money expended on each Course. These data points are only available if the following fields are populated and you have permissions to view them:

  • Completed
  • Not Completed
  • Started
  • Not Started
  • In Progress
  • Failed

The Course Summary Report is located in the Reports tab on the left side of the Admin Interface. Selecting the report name will redirect you to the Course Summary Report page. From here, you can filter results based on a variety of data points. 

Note: Be mindful that opening a report may also bring up a favorite saved layout to shared default organizational report layout.
