Salesforce: Example Reports Managed Package

  • Updated

This article reviews how to install the reporting managed package (SJ Example Reports) for Skilljar Objects in your Salesforce instance. 


  1. The most recent Salesforce App Integration has been installed in your Salesforce instance and Data is flowing from Skilljar to Salesforce.
  2. The Skilljar Custom Objects have been edited by a Salesforce Admin to "Allow Reporting".

Estimated Time Spend

10+ minutes.

Note: Depending on your reporting needs, this task ranges from no setup being required to multiple hours needed to build automated and custom reports.


This managed package includes example reports and report-type templates to help your Salesforce team build out custom reporting in your instance of Salesforce. This should be used as a resource for your Salesforce admin to continue to develop reports based on exactly what is useful for your training and business needs. 

This package will report on the objects that are created by the Skilljar Salesforce data integration - more information on these objects can be found here: Salesforce Integration: Custom Objects and their Fields.

Using This tool to create reports and build new reports

Once the Managed Package has been installed, you should see the reports in your instance of Salesforce and you can create a report with your training data and adjust the fields to suit any needs of your business. If you link your student data to contacts within your Salesforce, it will also be possible to roll up some of these reports to account-level data by using the existing report types. 

Additional suggestions for adding other reports using Skilljar Data:

The following suggestions are other report types that your Salesforce admin can build that are not included in this managed package:

  1. Virtual Instructor Lead Training (VILT) registrations:

    This will involve creating a report type to see who has registered for your VILT lessons - Report type should be built using the following Objects in the Report Builder:mceclip1.png
    This report uses: Courses with Lessons with Vilt Sessions with Vilt Session Registrations (+Student via lookup)


  2. Joined Report Showing Student Course Completions with Sign-Up Field Data:

    This will involve using report types: Students w Course Progress and Students with Sign Up Fields that have been joined and are grouped by Student Name (screenshot has had names removed)
