WordPress Video Lessons Manager Plugin (CMVLM) - Progress Report - Admin View (Back-end and Front-end)
Reports (Admin Panel)
The WordPress Video Lessons Manager plugin provides the admin an overall view of the usage of the videos on site. Reports can be viewed for a specific user, video, lesson or course.
Starting from version 3.4.2, the report is also available in the Front-end.
If the report is not showing data, check the options at CM Video Lesson Manager → Settings → General → Statistics.
- Track date and time - Logs into the database the date and time every time a user watches part of a video If disabled, only aggregated data will be stored.
- Save the current progress each N [seconds] - The time, in seconds, in which plugin will save the current video progress.
On the Admin Panel navigate to CM Video Lesson Manager Pro → Progress Reports.
If viewing the report by user, all user statistics are displayed and can be filtered down to the level of a specific video, lesson or course.
The Progress Report will show the user's progress in percentage, how long the course or lesson is and how much time the user has spent watching course content.
If filtering for a lesson or course the progress, duration and time spent watching are specific to the course or lesson the report is being filtered by.
When grouping reports by the content (video, lesson, course) you can see all available related content.
And drill down by users, videos or courses.
TIP: Date and Time Data
You can log the time when each user watched videos. To do so, head to Settings → General tab → Statistics section. Turn on "Track date and time".
Now the admin report will have an additional column: Time Log.
Clicking on it will reveal the time log of that user. The data can be exported as a CSV file.
Important Note Regarding User Filter
If the website has less than (<) 100 users, the plugin will show drop-down (alphabetical list select control). Otherwise the plugin will show open filter option so that admin can filter user will name, email or id.
To display the progress report of all users in the front-end, use the shortcode
TIP: Who Can Access The Report?
You can define this in the settings.
