Channel Summary Report

The Channel Summary report provides a summary of user activity within your Percipio channels.

Note: Custom channels do not display in this report until content within them is accessed by a learner.

Specify filters, then select Update Table to view the report data in the current window.

To download your report with selected filters, you must select Update Table first before you select Start CSV Download. After you chose Start CSV Download, a message displays with a link to the Reports download tab. Select the link to view the CSV download progress and/or open the CSV file. If you do not update the table first, the CSV download uses the default filters.


  • Date filters: The Date filters apply to all data presented in the Channel Summary report.
    • Date Range Presets: A drop-down list of date ranges that filters the data to the selected range. Select Custom to enter specific dates.
    • Start: Instead of using a Date Range preset, use this to specify a start date. When you enter a Start date, the Date Range Presets filter changes to Custom.
    • End: Instead of using a Date Range preset, use this to specify an end date. When you enter an End date, the Date Range Presets filter changes to Custom.
  • Channel Type: Select whether you want to see all channels, only Skillsoft channels, or only custom channels in your report data.
  • Language: Select only one option from the drop-down list. All Languages is set by default.
  • Audience: Predefined group of users. Enter the name of an audience and then select it from the list. You can display the data for multiple audiences at the same time by entering more than one audience name.
  • Channel: Type a channel name in the field to filter the report to only that channel. This filter is single-select only.


The following columns are available in the Channel Summary report:

  • CHANNEL: The name of the channel.
  • CHANNEL TYPE: The type of channel (Skillsoft or Custom). Skillsoft channels are stock channels, and custom channels are those built specifically for or by your organization.
  • ACCESSES OF CONTENT: The total number of content accesses within the channel. A content item may exist in more than one channel. If a learner accesses a single content item that exists in three different channels, you see a count for that learner in the Accesses of Content column for each channel.
  • LAST PUBLISHED DATE: The date the channel was last published within Percipio.
  • SUBJECT: The library subject that contains the channel.
  • AREA: The library area that contains the subject to which the channel is associated.
  • USERS IN CONTENT: The total number of users who accessed content within the channel.
  • TOTAL DURATION: The total amount of time all users spent in a channel. Time is listed in (00h00m00s) format.
  • ESTIMATED CHANNEL DURATION:The estimated amount of time in hours, minutes, and seconds (00h00m00s) to complete all content within the channel.
  • CHANNEL UUID: A unique identifier for a channel. Channel UUIDs are mapped to activity codes in SumTotal Learn and are also used with third-party learner management systems.
