TalentLMS lets you create custom infographics to generate tailor-made visual reports on all types of portal activity.

2. Go to the Infographics (1) tab, click the more symbol and, from the action button, choose Create new (2).
3. On the Create infographic dialog box, start by giving your infographic a Title (3).
4. Then, in the Reference (4) section, choose the source of the data that comprises your infographic among:
- System: A report on your overall system activity.

- Group: A report on your selected group activity.
5. From the Theme (5) drop-down list, choose one of the available color combinations for your visual report.
6. From the Artwork (6) drop-down list, choose one of the available illustration styles to decorate the header.

When the reference period is other than "All", the infographic statistics show results only for courses and users that have been created in the given time period.
8. Click Create infographic (8) to proceed.
9. Click the edit (9) switch to start editing your new infographic.
By default, your new infographic contains a series of sections. You can either edit or delete a section by clicking the Edit section button or add a new section by clicking the Add section button at the footer of your infographic. You can also rearrange the sections on your template. Just click the reorder symbol on a section to drag and drop it in its new position.
|Note: You can add up to 15 sections to your infographic.|
10. Pick a section, and click Edit section to customize its content.
11. Check or uncheck Title to either display or hide the section title.

To set your infographic as the system default, click the more symbol (9) and, from the drop-down list, choose Make default. From the same list, you can also Clone, Delete or Export your infographic to an image file.
