To access the OpenSesame Plus Insights Dashboard, you must be the account administrator and have at least two active OpenSesame Plus learner seats. If learners have not yet launched any subscription courses, there will be no information to display.
Insights will automatically pull a report for the past twelve months, and that time span can be adjusted with the "Filters" option at left. Depending on how much learner data is in your report, you might see a few gray loading icons appear for a couple minutes as the request processes.
If you see the Insights title and a 401 error stating “You are not authenticated to view this page," though, the reporting service might be blocked in your browser. Here is how that error looks:
Please click the link for your browser below for a guide to allowing Insights. (If you're not sure which browser you're using, visit this page to find out: What's my browser?)
If the steps below don't help, or you see loading icons that never finish loading, our Support team is here to assist: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And as always, whenever adjusting security settings on your system, please do not hesitate to check in with your IT team.
