Moodle Reports Scheduling

Hey, how often do you log in to see your LMS reports? You ever got frustrated to login and navigate to check your Moodle report, and thought of a convenient way to see the same?

Well, we as LearnerScript – an advanced analytics plugin for Moodle LMS, understand your eLearning and reporting world. In other words, we have come up with a more convenient solution to view your Moodle reports than the conventional way. So, what exactly is a ‘Schedule’ feature for Moodle reports?

A date with Moodle reports

In case you or your stake-holders created reports in Moodle LMS, you have to log in to view the metrics every time. Logging in a good number of times into your Moodle is certainly a headache. What if you have a troubled memory in remembering login credentials? In such case, the feature called ‘Schedule’ comes to your rescue. With this feature, you can set schedule reports to a day, week or month. Upon scheduling report in LearnerScript plugin, you no need to login to each time view and send them to your stake-holders.

In the same way, your learners need not sign in to Moodle LMS for checking learning analytics. Instead of that, with the help of Schedule feature, they can simply view the reports in system folder or their inbox. That’s cool, isn’t it?
