A read-only copy of a report from within Anthology Accreditation can be generated for your upcoming accreditation submission. Below is an explanation of the report generation process. It is important to note that you should start this process at least 5 days before you need to have your offline report files for submission.
Steps in the process
Continue reading below to see the individual steps in this process and also check out this video tutorial in the Anthology Academy.
1. Log into your Anthology Accreditation site and choose Offline Report from the Options menu.
2. Click New Offline Report
3. Provide information about what you would like to be included in the Offline Report.
* If your report collection contains a Page Library titled "Integrity," we recommend checking the box next to Integrity.
4. Review the details of your request and then click Next to start the Link Check process.
5. You will then be taken back to the request screen. An email will be sent to you when the Link Check has completed and the results are available. You can also click on the name of the report to see the status of the Link Check.
The Link Check conducted will provide a list of any broken links. A broken link results when a file has been linked within a requirement and then removed, making the link empty. The Link Check will also identify any external web links that require authentication to be viewed.
6. Once the Link Check is complete you will be able to view the results and identify any links that need to be updated. If you do not have any links that need to be updated than you can continue on to the next step of generating the report.
If you do have links that need to be updated make those adjustments and then you can come back to this page to rerun the Link Check.
7. Click the Generate Report button to trigger the .zip file generation. The length of time it takes to generate the .zip file varies depending on the size of the data requested. You will receive an email once the report is available.
8. You will need to unzip/extract the folder once it is downloaded to your computer. We recommend using a Windows PC to extract the folder. To view your report: double click on the ViewReport.html file from the unzipped folder.
9. Finally, you’ll be able to copy the folder onto your own flash drives or upload directly to a submission portal, depending on your accrediting agency requirements.
The report will include all the information that you have physically uploaded into the specific compliance collection you chose; such as text, images, and documents, as well as the pre-loaded welcome pages.
Please note that if you are using URL Sources or hyperlinks to external websites in your report, a reviewer MUST have internet access to view those external web links. Any links to external websites cannot be self-contained in the Offline Report files.
