Continuing Education Admin Reports

Overview

Administrators have access to a powerful report in the Uncanny Continuing Education Credits plugin that allows querying course completion and credit data by user, date range and LearnDash Group. The exportable report includes records for learner name, email address, course name, completion dates, credits earned for the course and total credits earned.

backend CEU report
To access a report showing earned credits, visit Uncanny CEUs > Credit Report as a WordPress administrator. Filters can be used to output data for the appropriate date range, users, groups and courses.

The Export to CSV option generates a CSV file that can be opened in any spreadsheet application for further analysis. This is a good way to investigate more complex queries, like users that completed a total credit value within a range, course completions across a series of dates, high credit earners, etc.

There is also a Deficiency Report tab available that show users that have not complete their required number of credits. This is determined by the rollover date set in the plugin and the number of required credits set at either the group or individual level for the user.

Credit Report Settings

The LearnDash credit report allows several options to be configured in Uncanny CEUs > Settings in /wp-admin/:

LearnDash Credit Report Settings

The Show user avatars setting optionally loads avatars for users listed from the report. It is disabled by default, as loading avatar images can slow down report generation.

There are 3 options for Report Mode:

  • Legacy: The system and queries that existed before Uncanny CEUs 4.1. This should only be used for compatibility, like if you customized report output and credit capture outside of our plugin.
  • Performance: The new default option, captures some data during user updates so some data is effectively “prefetched” and reduces user queries.
  • Ludicrous: Generates cached credit data hourly based on a cron, then loads the data from the cached record in the report. Can be refreshed on demand if data is stale.

Changing the default date range and number of rows per page is an optional step that can be done either to target what you most commonly use or to improve performance (with a smaller date range and lower page length).

User Profiles

Administrators can also see credit totals on user profile pages in /wp-admin/. Total credit and credits earned since the rollover date are both added to user profiles with this plugin for easy reference when reviewing user details.
