click for administrative reports

Reporter view is great for administrators who need to look-up training records for their whole unit or several project teams. Depending upon your needs, training completion records are available for different audiences and in several formats (on-screen page, emailed Excel sheet, PDF). Reports can be set to run on a specific schedule or accessed as needed.

Get access to reports

Access to reports is limited because they may contain some protected information. Supervisors can view their employee's training records. Administrators can view unit and University-wide training records as required by their position. Contact to request administratrive views and reports. You will be required to complete the online Saba LMS Access training.

Limits of our data

The system includes the following non-training fields: manager/s, maximum of 3 departments, status (faculty, staff, student, affiliate), as well as standard profile information (name, email). Some data is retrieved when you login from the MSU Identity system. Corrections to that data would need to be done through IDM, HR, SIS.

Team Views

A manager (or P.I.) may view his/her subordinate's training records in the Team Dashboard dropdown.  You can also give your grad student or department secretary access to your dashboard using the Proxy function. 

Request a new report

There are over 100 different reports available (see all) though some data is not currently being collected by MSU (e.g. gender) or not practical given many employees work for multiple managers/departments/locations. Common reports are shown below. Contact to request additional reports be added to the menu. 

People Admininstration Access

Some individuals are given additional rights to view everyone's training records as part of their institutional responsibilities. They have access to reports, but can also assign training and set-up proxy views.

Students can print or email their transcript of CITI Programs courses or Grad School workshops or other RCR-related topics. They can print a certificate of completion for individual courses.
