Our clients have many interesting use cases for reporting on certificates issued in their online courses.

Here are a few:

  • As a Licensing Body I want a report of certificates issued in a particular format, so that I can send it to the state on a daily basis. 
  • As an LMS Admin, I want a daily report of certificates issued with links to download the certificate so that I can mail a copy to the student.
  • As a Student, I want to see a single page that shows me all the certificates I have received with an option to download, so that I can easily retrieve a record of learning.

With these needs in mind, we’ve created a Certificates Issued Summary report that shows the users’ name, the course they have completed, the date they received the certificate and a URL from which they can download the certificate:

We have two versions of this report: depending on whether you are using the Certificate module or the Custom Certificate Module, you’ll use either:

  1. Certificate Issued Summary

  2. Certificates Issued Summary (Custom)

Both of these reports are secured for Instructors and can be filtered by course category and course.  

Making Changes to Your Reports:

If you’d like to make changes to your reports, such as add, remove or delete a column, you can do that in the Ad Hoc View.  If you’d like to change the security on the report, you can do that in the Data Source.
