Schoox provides you with a powerful reporting tool within your academy, giving you the ability to track academy members' progress in a number of ways.
Users with Admin rights or Managers with the Reporting permissions are able to create customized reports and then export them as CSV files. Moreover, they can create report templates that will be available to anyone who has reporting permissions. Last but not least, they have the option to schedule the reports to be automatically delivered to either themselves or to others within the organization based on the academy's org structure. The Report Builder provides very detailed data about your members' training performance, based on the specific parameters you set up.
You can get to the Report Builder options by navigating to the Admin/Manage/Reporting tab from the upper navigation bar and selecting Reporting for Admin and Reporting or Panel for Manage on the left, then Report Builder.
There are Public and Private Reports.
- Private reports are viewable only to the individual who created it. They are either simply marked as “Private” or include specific organizational elements the report is tracking, since not everyone has the same access.
- Public reports are those that are accessible to anyone who is able to run reports. Reports cannot be saved as public if an organizational element is selected. Think of public reports as baseline templates. Organizational elements can be added before running the public report.
- Scheduled reports are those that will run consistently at set times.
Reports can be edited or deleted only by the individual who originally created the report. Reports can also be downloaded and copied. Reports can also be organized into sections.
Click on the Create New Report button and choose your report from the list provided. Select your desired report type and then Continue. You can return to the previous page, if needed, by clicking the Back to control panel button at the top of the page.
Once you have selected the report type, you are ready to set up the Report Options.
A) Give the report a unique name that differentiates it from others like it.
B) Select from the drop-down list the item(s) on which you'd like to run the report, verify the correct time zone, and determine the group of members to use. (See Report Options below)
C) On the left, select the Fields that you want to include. Fields in white can be deleted if not needed. Rename the field by selecting the gear icon. Rearrange the order as needed by drag and drop; the order of your fields also defines the order of the columns in your report. See also Editing the Fields the Report Builder

J) If specific organizational elements chosen in H above, the report can be published as Public. Anyone with reporting capabilities in your academy can access it, and then run the report on whomever they'd like. If marked Private, it will be yours and yours alone to use in future reporting.
K) Select Save if you just want to save the report, or Save and Run if you want to download the report now and also save it for future use.
