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 Uploads report provides you with details of files uploaded into Courses by Learners. You will see all submissions, including the ones that are already approved.

In this report, the Admin can approve or deny pending upload requests. Approved requests will update the Learner's progress in the associated Course. Denied requests will appear to the Learner in the corresponding Course page as denied, and will allow that Learner to replace their initial upload for re-approval. 

The Course Uploads 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 Uploads Report page. From here, you can filter results based on a variety of data points. 

Note: This report will only display active User data. Be mindful that opening a report may also bring up a favorite saved layout, or a shared default organizational report layout.
