Creating a Usage Report

A usage report showcases the behaviors of users visiting your Concourse system. In order to create a usage report, click the Report dropdown in the main navigation and choose Usage. Note, this report is only available to Concourse system administrators.

The resulting page will show the Usage Report for your Concourse system. The information will be displayed as graphs, charts, and textual information. The following screenshot illustrates how the data may be presented in your system:


Below you will find the necessary information to interpret each chart in your report. It is important to note the following terms and their associated definitions according to Google Analytics when reading your report:

  • Country/Regions: Shows the locations from which Concourse is accessed.
  • Devices: Shows through what screens users are accessing syllabi.
