The reports page shows all available reports. Each report includes the name [1] and a help icon [2] that explains more about the report. You can also view the last time the report was run, if any [3].

Configure Reports

Configure Reports

All reports must be configured before they can be run. To configure a report, click the Configure button.

Depending on the report, report configurations may include one or several options.

Select Terms

Select Terms

All reports except the LTI Report and User Access Tokens reports require you to select a term. In the Terms drop-down menu [1], you can choose from the Default Term, or any active, future, or past terms. Courses with muted assignments may not accurately reflect scores in this report.

The Grade Export, Last User Access, Student Competency, LTI Report, and User Access Tokens reports include the option to include deleted objects. Deleted objects may include deleted courses, users, or enrollments. To include deleted objects, click the Include Deleted Objects checkbox [2].

Select Report Order

Select Report Order

The Outcome Results report allows you to choose how to order the report. Ordering options are by Users, Courses, or Outcomes. By default, the report orders by Users. Select the radio button for your preferred report order.

Select CSV Files

Select CSV Files

The Provisioning and SIS Export reports ask you to select the CSV files you want to generate for a selected term [1]. Select the checkboxes next to the files you want to generate. Files can be generated for Users, Accounts, Terms, Courses, Sections, Enrollments, Groups, Group memberships, Cross-listing (X list), and User Observers. You can also choose to include deleted objects, which may include deleted courses, users, or enrollments.

Viewing SIS data is optional in these reports. If you want to include data created by your SIS, select the Created by SIS checkbox [2]. Otherwise, the CSV files only display data created through the Canvas interface.

Note: The selected term only impacts Courses, Sections, Enrollments, and Cross-listing CSV files.

The Students with no Submissions report asks you to select a start date [1] and end date [2] for the report. You can either select a date by clicking each respective date's calendar icon, or you can enter the date directly in the date field.
