Report Builder tool coming to Moodle

Among the new features currently under development, one of the most important is the inbuilt report builder tool which allow users to generate reports that combine information from logs and other source (activities, courses, users, etc.).

The benefits of the report builder will be:

  • Allow flexible reports to be created and customised for any need
  • Allow admins and teachers to create reports to redistribute
  • Allow admins and teachers to gain new insights into their students, courses, and faculty
  • Allow reports to be created for plug-ins

You can try out the report builder tool on the prototype Moodle community site at http://prototype.moodle.net/reportbuilder/login/index.php

The specifications for the report builder are mentioned here: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Report_Builder_Specification  The tracker issue for the report builder is MDL-30193

Technical documentation for the Report Builder is located at: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/reportbuilder

Here is the report I have build while testing the report builder prototype:

Hope the inbuilt report builder will come soon to the Moodle.
