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.
