Reporting Channels are available for Producer+ and Enterprise license holders.
Reporting Channels allows you to group your events that you run within the WorkCast Platform into a single location (a Channel) and then run a report to compile of list of statistics that can be used for comparison reports.
Examples of times a WorkCast reporting channel would be suitable for you.
- Statistics on all events you've run in a specific year
- Statistics on all events that have had a specific presenter on
- Statistics on all events around a specific topic/category (determined by yourselves)
For further information on how to create a reporting channel and understanding them, please follow the step-by-step guide below.

Note: Your event session must be published for it to show up in the list above. For example, if your event is now on-demand, the live session will not appear as it is unpublished, but the on-demand session will appear for you to add. So we would advise adding to your reporting channel once an event is created. to ensure it is published.
