Groups indicate how the report data should be organized. Adding a group creates a row heading for each value in the group. For example, if you group a report on user names, a separate row appears for each user. You can organize your report data using the following groups:
Reports can contain more than one grouping. After you select the first group, a second row appears in the Groups section. If you add multiple groups to the report, there will be multiple levels of headings. For instance, if you group by User name and then by Topic, you will see a primary heading row for each user with subcategory heading rows under each user for the topics he or she viewed. The order in which you add new groups determines how the report is organized.
Note: You cannot group by both outline and topic at the same time.
Sort: After you select a grouping, you can select an option to control the display of the information in the report. For the Topic, User name, and Playback mode groupings, you can specify the sort order as Ascending, Descending, or None. If you select the Ascending or Descending option, the group headings are listed alphabetically. If you select the None option, the group headings are listed in the order in which they appear in the database. When you include multiple groupings in your report, the overall sorting order is determined by the order in which the groupings appear. To make a field the primary sort, select it as the first grouped field. For instance, in the above example, the data is sorted first by user name and then by topic. If the order of the two groupings were reversed, you would see a row heading for each topic with subcategory heading rows under each topic for the users who viewed that topic.
Level: When you group by outline, the results are always displayed in hierarchical outline order. By default, all items at all levels in the outline are included, even those for which no data exist. However, you can also choose to limit the report to include data on only the top few levels of the outline. The available level options are Full outline (default), Primary, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4. If you select the Primary option, the report includes summary data only for the top level of each outline in your content. The primary level document in an outline provides the name of the outline and is equivalent to level 0. If you select the Level 1 option, the report includes summary data for all of the documents that appear at the first level in the outline, in addition to the primary level data. Similarly, selecting the Level 2 option includes data for all of the documents appearing at the second and higher levels in the outline, and likewise for Level 3 and Level 4. Documents appearing at each level can include any combination of modules, sections, topics, concepts, questions, and assessments, depending on how your content is organized.
Note: Reporting tracks data down to the topic level only; it does not track content usage at the frame level.
