What you can do

  • See all members' individual progress in a channel
  • See which members have completed a channel's courses
  • See when team members joined the channel

The CSV report is updated in real-time with all active learners on your plan. The report can help answer questions such as:

  • Within a channel, what courses has each of my channel members viewed?
  • When did each of my channel members last watch each course, and did they complete it?
  • I want to streamline my channel. Do I have any courses in my channel that are also in a path in my channel, that I can remove?

Data fields for each channel member include:

Common questions

Do external videos and articles with time durations get tracked in advanced channels analytics?

Advanced channel analytics and the CSV report show the time duration that the channel creator assigned to the video or article. For example, if the link has a duration of one hour, your channel member will be credited one hour when they click on the link.

At this time, we track if the member clicked the external link, but we don't track how much time they spent on that external resource.

Users analytics will not be updated based on the external link time duration. That data is unique to channels analytics.

What do team managers see in channels analytics?

Team managers see the full list of channels in channels analytics. When a team manager clicks on a channel to view advanced channel analytics, they will see the learners on their team that are channel members, as well as their progress—even if they haven't watched any content.

If a team manager clicks on a channel that doesn't have any team members as channel members, the team manager will see the message, "It looks like none of your team members are in this channel."
