To view a report, find the session you want and click on the Clipboard button on the far right end of the session list. If you mouse over the clipboard button, it will display a popup that says, "View Report."

View the report

After you click the clipboard button, the report will open. The report will list the names of the participants, the time they joined the session, the time they left the session, and their total time in the session. The names in this report have been blurred by the author to protect the privacy of the attendees.

Session report information

If you had several participants in your session, you may have multiple pages. You can move to other pages of your report by using the page selector tool at the bottom center of the report view.

Things to keep in mind:
  • A particular session may have multiple reports if it has been used multiple times.
  • When searching for a participant, try both the first name and last name.
  • The report may be useful if you are trying to determine the attendance and length of attendance for your sessions.
