Closed Captioning with CaptionSync allows you to access usage and billing reports for individual user accounts or organizations. In this article we describe the various reports available in CaptionSync.
Status of Submissions
To find a list of submissions available for individual user accounts go to the Caption/Transcribe tab -> Status of Submissions, or Translate -> Status of Translations. You can query for the submissions using multiple filters, like Date, Status, Source, Source Language, Destination Language, Description, and Media File. You can see these other filters by expanding More options:
A user with See All Submissions privileges will be able to access a report of submissions available for all users within an organization via Caption/Transcribe -> Status of Submissions for All Users, or Translate -> Status of Translations for All Users.
For further analysis, you can also export a .csv file with the results of a query, either for submissions of individual user accounts, or for submissions of all users within an organization. You just need to check the Download CSV checkbox, and then click Submit Query.

When placing requests as a batch or via AST-Link, you can view the Batch History by going to Caption/Transcribe tab -> Batch Status. This page will display detail information regarding each batch such as Batch Identifier, In-Process Submissions, Cancel/Reject Submissions, Failed Submissions, etc.
