Why Users Love Advanced LMS Reporting In CourseMill LMS
Summary: Common complaints about Learning Management Systems (LMSs) include a lack of report templates or customizable reporting capabilities, the absence of a mobile app, and poor security. And of course, there’s also the general difficulty of learning to use a new Learning Management System; nearly every day a new one pops up in the market, and still no one ever seems to like their chosen system. Should you just give up on your dreams of advanced LMS reporting, mLearning, or successful training management? Certainly not!

Advanced LMS Reporting: Why You Should Choose CourseMill LMS By Trivantis 

As a manager, you’re probably used to getting reports via email from your company’s Learning Management System. But with CourseMill's advanced LMS reporting, managers can now create live links, straight from your desktop, to all your reports and dashboards. No need to wait for that email – you can check stats at any time.

This is done with Live Excel, a real-time interactive reporting feature. You can create shortcut icons on your desktop to this report; all you need is an internet connection, and you can get straight to your data with one click.

I think what they’ve done by integrating the Advanced Reports into CourseMill is really a stroke of genius”, says user David Lukasik, Chief Technical and Chief Learning Officer at PSI. “The legacy systems we’ve used in the past, the reporting has been a little bit clunky. What Advanced Reports is, fundamentally [Trivantis] leapt light years ahead and fully integrated a business intelligence system.

The ability to create live desktop shortcuts to your reporting dashboard allows reporters to access the information they want without having to log into CourseMill, making it much easier to quickly get information. With advanced LMS reporting you can track completion status, student interaction with specific questions in a course, transcripts, and more.

Advanced Reports allows you literally to reach to any field inside your database, you can hide fields, you can take data and manipulate it, you can put in custom fields to do calculations on information, and ultimately take a 30 column report and skinny it down to the 5 columns you want to show,” says Lukasik.

In addition, you can easily customize your reports and charts with drag and drop functionality. Lukasik notes that he finds looking at text-based reports to be difficult for a lot of people. However, with CourseMill's advanced LMS reporting “you can take those reports and convert them directly into dashboards, pie charts, line charts, column charts, and more. This makes the presentation of data so much easier for people to comprehend,” he says. Now users have “incredible controls and ability to put reports out in a much easier to consume format.

Advanced Reports provided a very quick ROI for Lukasik’s company and the amount of compliance increased by about 50 percent in a short period of time. In addition, he estimates that the new advanced reporting capabilities will save him about 20 hours a month. “It’s like someone came along and gave me a business intelligence system and I’m really happy about that,” says Lukasik.
