View and Manage Learner Progress
The Progress Report included in Uncanny LearnDash Groups enables Group Leaders and Administrators to view and (optionally) manage the progress of users in the front end. It’s a very powerful tool that makes it possible for Group Leaders to have even more oversight over their groups; the video below highlights the benefits.
This hierarchy view of courses, lessons, topics and quizzes allows all of them be reviewed and marked complete or incomplete. For course and lesson completions, everything below those elements will also be marked completed.
A Progress Report page is created automatically on first activation of the Uncanny LearnDash Groups plugin, but to create one manually, simply create a new WordPress page and add this shortcode:
The shortcode supports the following attributes:
|Attribute Name||Description||Attribute Values||Default Value|
|orderby||Sets whether courses should be ordered by post ID, title, date, or menu order.||"title", "date", or "menu_order"||"ID"|
|order||Controls whether courses should be listed in ascending or descending order based on what's set in the order_by attribute.||"asc" or "desc"||"asc"|
|expand_by_default||Determines whether the dashboard will be expanded by default to show all lessons and topics||"yes" or "no"||"no"|
Once the page is set up, you can optionally add a link to it from the Group Management page. To do this, look for the Progress Report Page drop-down on the Settings page and choose the page you created that contains the [uo_groups_manage_progress] shortcode.
The scope of the user search is limited to the selected group in version 4.0 of the plugin and later. To search for users within a group, make sure to choose the group first (or click into the user’s progress from the Group Management page and the group and user information will be populated automatically).
Update Learner Progress
To manage progress in the front end as a Group Leader or administrator, visit the page that includes the [uo_groups_manage_progress] shortcode.
Once on the page, use the Search field to search for a user by first name, last name or email address. Partial matches are accepted. Please note that Group Leaders can only see users associated with the groups they manage, and can only see and manage progress for courses associated with those groups. Administrators have access to everything.
Click the checkboxes next to course, lesson, topic and quiz names to mark the associated item as complete or incomplete. When completing courses that include lessons, or lessons that include topics, you will be prompted to confirm the request and mark all items under it as complete or incomplete as well.
Please note that progress changes are made instantly. If you mark a course as complete, for example, and the course has a certificate and notifications, those will generated and cannot be reversed. Make sure you want to apply the change before confirming it.
Download or Print Learner Certificates
From the Manage Progress page, Group Leaders can download or print any certificates the learner has earned. These include both certificates attached to courses and certificates attached to quizzes. Once the learner has completed a course or a quiz with a certificate attached, a Certificate button will appear in the corresponding row:
Note: If quizzes are completed by an Administrator or Group Leader, certificates are not available for those quizzes. Only learner-completed quizzes will display certificates in the Progress Report.
