Searching, Using Filters, Setting Dates - Overview - Canvas LMS

Your time is too valuable to sift through all your data.  Find what you need by narrowing dates and filters. Information on Searching, using Filters, and the Date Field for great reports is just below.

SEARCHING 

Search by column by typing into the Search box to find data based upon a specific data set.  

To control which columns are searchable, click "Personalize Report".  Under the Personalize Report options, enable/disable (enable = blue; disable = grey) columns under "Enable to Search Column on Report".

Note: To search a specific name, please search by first or last name only. 

 

FILTERING

Filters can be found to the right of the search box. These filters will adjust to the focus of the report, although the majority of the reports have a Course Filter.  Other filters include filters for specific activities and/or cohorts. 

Note: Because the data is called in real-time, IntelliBoard defaults to selecting the first course in the first category.  

COURSE FILTER:

Search Use the search box for searchich courses in the right box
Selected Courses All selected for displaying courses are presented in the left box. Click the check mark near the course to unselect it.
Unselected Courses All unselected for displaying courses are presented in the right box. Click the check mark near the course to select it.
OK button Click "OK" to apply course settings.

NOTE: When you do not select a course in the course filter, we’ll default to showing everything.

FILTERING BY TIME

Note: The date filter uses a specific data field to narrow by date.  This is report specific.  Some reports have multiple date filter options, however you still must select one specific data field prior to a search. 

To change the date field, please click on the date filter (e.g. "All Time)
Simply click on a Preset Date option (do not miss additional options under "More Preset Dates" 5_Selecting_Preset_Date.png

Choose a Custom Date Filter

 

Once you click Custom, you'll see a date box.  Click your first date. Navigate to the end date. Click the end date. Your custom date will appear.
