Assignment Profile Report Overview¶
Assignment Profile reports provide a way for you to report on information about the Assignments you have in your account. The finished report will have optional Summary Pages outlining the information included in the report and/or Assignment Detail Pages for each Assignment depending on the options you choose when you create the report. The Assignment Profile reports are currently only available in PDF format.
Here is an example of how the Summary Pages of your report may look. The layout of your Summary Pages may appear different depending on how you select to sort the report and the fields you select to include. You can find out more about selecting the options for the Summary Pages, and how they will appear depending on your selections, in the Assignment Profile Options Tab help topic.
Assignment Detail Pages¶
Your report may also have Assignment Detail Pages that show more information about each Assignment. Here is an example of how an Assignment Detail page may appear. You can find out more about how to include different fields of information in your report in the Fields (Assignment Profile Reports) help topic.

Navigate to Assignment Detail Pages with Bookmarks¶
When your Assignment Profile report includes Assignment Detail Pages and is opened using Adobe Reader, you can use Adobe's Bookmarks feature to go directly to the Assignment Detail page for a particular assignment.
Some web browsers open PDF files using Adobe Reader by default depending on the browser's settings. Many web browsers now open PDF files with a built-in PDF viewer. This means you will either need to save the files to your local computer and open them from there using Adobe Reader, or disable the built-in viewer so files open with Adobe Reader.
