2. Edit: Click this to edit the selected report configuration.

3. Copy: Click to copy the selected report configuration.

Creating and Editing Reports

Your user account must have panel edit privileges to complete this task.

Click the "CREATE NEW" button at the top of the Panelist Activity Report page to create a new report, or click the "Edit" button next to an existing report name to edit it. The panelist activity report definition menu will appear, where you can configure your report name, type, and scope:


Report type

Reports can be either "Aggregate" or "Non-Aggregate". Click into the drop-down menu to select a report type:



Aggregate reports provide activity statistics on individual panelists (like how many surveys they've been invited to and how many they have taken, etc.). Reports of this type include the following columns:

# Surveys invited The number of surveys that the panelist has been invited to
# Surveys started The number of surveys the panelist has started
# Surveys completed The number of surveys completed by the panelist
# Surveys profile term'd The number of times the panelist was quota terminated
Response rate Number of surveys invited vs started
Completion rate Number of surveys completed vs invited
Quota term rate Number of surveys quota terminated vs invited
Profile term rate Number of surveys profile terminated vs invited
# of Community login‡  Number of times the panelist successfully signed into the community

# Surveys Q/P/C* The number of times a panelist finished taking a survey (either as a profile, quota term or complete)
# Panelist referred*‡ The total number of panelists that were referred by this panelist (regardless of whether or not they ended up signing up)

* Denotes an optional column
 Values in this column are NOT limited by the selected data range
Values in this column are NOT affected by project limits


Non-aggregate reports include detailed activity information about all panelists and their survey history. Reports of this type include the following columns:

Column Description
Panelist  The panelist identifier
Project ID The ID of the project that the panelist participated in
Project Name The name of the project that the panelist participated in
Status The status of the participation (invited, started, profile, quota, completed)
Points The number of points that were given out for that participation
Invited Time When the invitation was sent to the panelist
Last Modified Time The last time the session was modified, this can be the time when the session was started (for started status) or the time when the session was finished
Project Category If the project was assigned to a category, it will be shown in this column
Project Client If the project has a client assigned to it, it is shown here

Report scope

The scope of a report consists of the projects it covers, the date range for the data you'd like to view, and any saved filters you'd like to apply:


1. Projects: Use this selection to limit the scope of the report to individual projects. Selecting no projects will include all of them.

2. Date range: Use the date pickers to select the time frame you wish to look at. The selected dates are inclusive, meaning selecting January 1st to January 15th will include all of January 1st and 15th. The maximum allowed time range is one year.

3. Filter selection: Filters are a useful tool to keep your reports manageable. For aggregate reports without a filter, your report will include one row per panelist. For non-aggregate based reports it will be one row per activity (worst case: rows = number of panelists * number of projects).

It is highly recommended to use filters for these reports as the resulting report files tend to get very large on active panels.
