Quick links



Viewing Event Reports

From the Events tab, click on the event you wish to view a report for. Clicking on Report Setup will take you directly to the event reporting page where certain default report items are selected for you. 

Alternatively from the Reports tab, you can view all of the events created in your account, navigate to your required event and click 'Event Report'.





Choosing Report Options

Your event by default will display a Standard Report. To create a custom report click Show all options.

1.   Firstly, select the show more options button, here you can select the data range of the report. This can either be all data for that event or a custom data range using the calendar/date selectors.

2.    Select the options in the Report Types that you would like to see displayed in your report. Please be aware depending on the configuration of your event some Report Types may not be applicable for your event and return no data.

3.    Select the event session/s that you require to be included in your report. This can either be the Live Event Session, the On Demand Session or both. For more complex virtual events you may see multiple session options to choose.  If you are running a standard live event there may just be the one single session option to select until the event is turned into an On Demand. 

4.    Once you have made your changes, click Save New.


5.    Give the report a unique name and click Save.


6.    You will then be able to view your report and a shareable URL will be created. You can navigate between different saved reports through the left hand menu.




Understanding Reports & Engagement Scoring

Top Level Event Statistics


1. Registrations - The total unique registrants for the event. If an individual registers more than once with the same email address their original details will be updated and they will only appear as a single registration. You can click the download icon which will generate a report you can view online or download as a .csv file. Users registered via the API or bulk upload will also appear in the registrants list. 

2. Registration Page Visits - The total number of times the event registration page has been visited. A single person may attend the registration page multiple times. If users are registered on a non-WorkCast registration page, so this could be via the API or bulk upload, you may see a lower registration page visits number to the total number of registrants.

3. Registration Conversion Rate - The total number of registrations divided by the total number of registration page visits. This statistic will help you understand if items such as your event title, amount of content and number of registration fields are helping to convert visitors to the page into registrations.

4. Auditorium Visitors - The total unique number of attendees who have visited the main event presentation page at any time prior, during or after the live event date and time. You can click the download icon which will generate a report you can view online or download as a .csv file.

5. Attended Live - The total unique number of attendees who have attended the event during the live event date and time (this includes 1 hour prior and 1 hour after the event duration time). You can click the download icon where you can view online or download as a .csv file.

Important: Attended Live stats will only populate 1 hour after the end duration time the event has been configured for.

6. Registration to Attended Live Conversion Rate - The total number of registrations divided by the total number of live attendees.

7. Average Event Engagement - The total event engagement is based upon the average of individual attendees engagement scoring. You can click the download icon to view the total event engagement for all auditorium visitors and attendees. Individual attendees engagement scores can be viewed on the 'Auditorium Visitors' and 'Attended Live' reports.

An individuals Engagement is calculated upon the following event items:

  1.  Event Viewing Duration (60%) - If you have a live event scheduled for 1pm with a 30 minute duration, and an attendee is active on the page for the whole of that time period they will achieve a score of 60% for the event viewing duration. If they attended for only 15 minutes of the live event duration time they would achieve a score of 30% for event. 
  2. Polls Answered (10%) - If you answer one or more polls during an event you will gain a score of 10% for polls answered.
  3. Submitting a text question / chat message (20%) - If you ask one or more questions or submit one or more chat messages (event setup allows for either Q&A or chat) you will gain a score of 20%.
  4. Document & Link Downloads (10%) - If you click one or more document or link downloads in the documents section of the event you will gain a score of 10%.

Total Individual Engagement Score =  Event Viewing Duration % + Polls Answered % + Question or Chat Asked % + Document/Link Download %

NOTE: If your event is configured without one of the above event elements then attendees will never gain an engagement score of 100%. Attendees will stay engaged during an event the more they can interact with different event elements.
