Concourse here, ready and reporting for duty!
Our new Report Center brings together all of the syllabus reports in Concourse in one spot, including some new ones. The Report Center can be accessed at any time by clicking on the Reports link in the navigation bar at the top of the screen.
Note: Depending on your own permissions within the Concourse platform, you might see more or less reporting options in your own report center.
Search tips (for all reports)
Many of our system reports ask you to Search First. This gives you an opportunity to select and consider only the courses that are important to you.
Here are a few search tips to help you out:
- When searching for a large number of syllabi, there may be a slight delay. If the delay goes on too long, please let Concourse know.
- Use the Advanced button to show all available criteria
- The Campus, School, and Department criteria can be used alone or with a course subject or number to narrow your focus
- Change the Time Frame criteria from “Current and Future Courses” to the range that suits you
If you have more complex reporting needs, think about using our APIs!
Below is a list of the available reports in the Report Center. Each one can be viewed in browser, but for most table-based reports you can download and save additional, more detailed versions by clicking Download Extended CSV (or Download CSV in the case of the Hidden Courses report).
For this report you will search first to locate relevant courses. After running the search, you will be transferred to the Audit Status Summary page where you can see an overview of how many courses fall into each category (New, In Progress, Submitted for Review, Reviewed, and Modified Since Review).
For this report, you’ll select the Syllabus Item (a parent or child) you want to review, and then search to define your course list. Most “content” will be in a child item (like books or schedule entries), so make sure to double-check your item selection.
Checking for missing requirements? Look no further than the missing item report. Select the Syllabus Item you’re checking for, then use search to find courses for review. Once you run the report, you’ll be presented with an all-clear if none of the courses are missing your selected item, or a list of course links and course ids that are missing that item.
Syllabus Access (by course)
Also a search first report, this report provides details on all-time views for the course collection at the top, and then gives you the by group details for each course you selected. This report isn’t impacted when students are dropped from a course, so think of it like an odometer – the counts go up, not down!
Syllabus Access (by day)
This is a system-level report that presents some interesting access-related statistics. You can see total views, peak views, and average views per day; you can also check your system trends by month, day of the week, and group.
Syllabus Changes (by course)
This report relies on the search first functionality as well. By running this report you will be able to see summary statistics for both actions and methods, and a running total of all time changes across the selected course(s). On-screen you’ll see a breakdown of those actions and methods by course, and you can access the extended .csv for full course details.
Syllabus Changes (by day)
As a system-level report, system-wide aggregates and trends are addressed here. You can see a running total of changes across all courses, your peak change date and count, and an average of changes per day. Displayed trends include counts of changes by month, by action, and by method. You may also review the on-screen display for counts of action and method by day, and download the extended .csv for full detail.
This page provides detail on how your instance is being used. You can look through pageview trends, common locations, devices, browsers, and acquisitions.
This report is very practical and is intended to let you quickly check on errant permissions in your system. Select a group¸ search, and then view the results. You’ll see a link to each course, the course id, and the set permission for each entitlement. Both the on-page list and the extended CSV provide quick ways to audit the selected course and role.
This is a system-wide report that shows you any course that you have marked as hidden. To shake things up, you can download a regular CSV because the extended one wasn’t invited to this party.
Finally, the System statistics report provides a great way to get a snapshot of your instance. The administrators and features blocks are particularly insightful.
