The Reports page provides access to report lists by folder. Standard LMS Reports, including any data mining reports Latitude built as custom reports for specific customers, are available in the Classic Reports menu. Custom reports built by portal administrators using the Report Writer are found in the separate Reports Folders menu.  Learn more about our reporting capabilities here: LMS Reporting Tools.

    •  All standard filters are joined with an implied “AND” operator. 
  3. Advanced Filters are also optional, but are hard-coded into the report and will always be applied during execution. Most advanced filters allow multiple value selections. 
  4. Select Columns from the categories shown. Columns can be dragged/dropped to rearrange them. Click to the left of the column to designate sorting. In the right Title column, click on the column name to change how it displays on the actual report.
  5. Click Run to execute the report, or Cancel to return to Report List page. When a report is run, a message displays at top of page: Your report has been queued. You will receive an email when it has been processed and is ready.

Report Results 

View and download completed reports from the Report Results page. This page lists results for all reports executed over the past 30 days, with a note to scheduled Frequency, Record Count, time-stamped Run Date and Expire Date. Result records are ordered by Run Date, and will be permanently deleted from the database on their Expire Date. You should export and save result files to maintain the data for future reference.

Click the linked Report Name to view results online. Click the Delete icon to permanently delete an entry from your results repository.

Online result records display the Report Name, Record Count, and applied Standard Filters, which provide reference for results data.  

Review results online for up to 30 days, or click the export icons to download the file and save it permanently. File format options are Excel (XLSX), Comma Separated Values (CSV), Portable Document Format (PDF). If a report generates an extremely large data set, the system may prompt you to export directly to an offline location rather than display the results to the page.
