Creating and managing reports for Managers.

Adobe Learning Manager enables you to create varied reports to track, monitor, and control learner activities. Learners activities are tracked and captured automatically into the database. Manager and Administrator reports are generated from the database.

Overview overview

Reports generation process is same for both Administrator and Manager. Managers can view reports corresponding to their subordinates whereas Administrator can view all organization-wide reports.

Reports are aggregated in a dashboard. A report has to exist inside a dashboard. A Default Dashboard exists by default in the reports page. Any report added by you moves into this default dashboard. To add reports to individual dashboards, use the drop-down arrow and choose Add Report. For more information on creating dashboards, refer to Dashboards section on this page.

This user group report enables you to compare the performance of one department/division/role against the other to evaluate their learning achievements.

Custom user groups/user attributes customusergroupsuserattributes

You can also create customized user groups using Add users/user groups feature in Learning Manager. After creating the user groups you can generate reports for those customized userg groups with the help of a list of attributes such as location, branch, and so on.
