To configure a report:
1. Navigate to Admin > Custom Reports.
2. Select the desired report. There are nine available reports:
- Facebook Wall Posts
3. Select the column categories desired for the report. The options will change based on the report type chosen. Some options will have additional criteria, such as the ability to enter a date range. To select all the categories at once, simply click the Select All checkbox at the top of the list.
4. Click Run Report.
Selecting certain column categories will present additional options.
The date ranges allow a particular start and or end date to be chosen.
If entered manually, the date range MUST be in this format: MM/DD/YYYY. Single digits are acceptable for months and days.
The Pages, Sites, and Products reports include a column for data regarding the last publish target. For the Products report, the data can be further delineated by specific publish target, date, and revision.
When running a report on Products or Assets, an option of "Subscribers" is available. This returns the number of pages subscribing to the Asset, page, or directory listed. To see which pages are subscribing to the Asset, page, or directory, click on the Dependency Tag.
This should not be confused with the Page Products option found on the Pages report. This indicates the number of products produced upon publish. For example, if the publish results in the page being available in HTML and PDF format, this is considered two products. Click the number listed under the Page Products column to see the products.
After running the report, the report will appear as a web page within OU Campus.
The report can be:
- Exported as a CSV file
- Sorted by the column headers
Navigate through the pages of report data using the upper, right-hand options, which
include Previous, Next, First, and Last. It is possible to enter a specific page number
to which to navigate as well.
Sort the report by the column headers. Clicking on the column header once will sort
in ascending order. Clicking a second time will sort as descending. An arrow will
appear next to the column by which the report is being sorted.
Note: After exporting the report in the CSV format, make sure to save the CSV file to the local computer, and then import the data into Excel. It is possible for the data to be altered by Excel if not imported and simply just opened.
Modifying the report will return the administrator to the previous configuration screen.
To do this, simply click on the Modify Report link at the upper, left-hand portion
of the report. The report options can be adjusted and the report re-run, or another
report can be run.
