Reports


Reports are generated tables of data that are saved in a pdf format and emailed to the user(s). Reports can be set up to automatically generate at specific days, intervals, or generate manually. The reports contain various information about your systems including, but not limited to, setting points, alarm status, and overridden status. The reports can also contain averaged or totalled information such as average run time of a system or total run time for a week. The information on the reports is set when your station is created by Control Systems Consultants. We offer various reports including energy analytics.


Using Mobile Reports Page


Image 1-1 | Mobile home page.

To navigate to your Reports configuration click the Reports button found on your mobile stations Home Page (image 1-1).

The Report Setup (image 1-2) page is divided into four sections; Time Trigger, Email, Request Report Now, and Notes.

NOTE:

Depending on which type of report you receive (such as energy analytics) some of these features may be disabled.

NOTE:

The features for the Email settings on the mobile station are not settable. This is because of the limitations of some mobile devices. We anticipate this changing in the near future so we have included this page into the mobile station. It does however show the current settings for the emails. To learn how to set up the email options on your normal station click here.

Time Trigger


TIME TRIGGER:

This section allows you to configure when or if an automatic report is generated. This is done using the Trigger Mode section. It has three options: manual, daily, and interval. All three options display when the last report was sent and when the next one will be generated.

Manual: This option disables all automatically generated reports. To learn how to manually generate a report see the section titled Request Report Now on this page.

Daily: This option generates a report on selected days of the week. The time the report is generated can be set in the Time Of Day field. The Randomization feature will randomly modify the time of generation by up to the amount entered into the field. Normally this is left at default 0 min/sec. The Days Of Week allows one to set which days of the week the reports are generated. This is done by checking the days desired. See image 2-1.

Interval: This option generates a report after set spaces of time. The time in-between generation can be set in the Interval field. The Time Of Day field allows you to set what time of the day the intervals begin and stop generating. The Time Of Day option must be check to function otherwise the reports will generate with no pauses based on the Interval setting. The Days Of Week allows one to set which days of the week the reports are generated. This is done by checking the days desired. See image 2-2.

NOTE:

The save button must be pressed after making any changes to the settings or they will revert back to the previous setting once the Report Setup pop-up page is closed.


Request Report Now


REQUEST REPORT NOW:

This section contains a button titled Generate Report that when pressed generates a report and sends it to all email recipients. This feature can be used at any time even if the Time Trigger is set up to automatically generate a report. This feature operates separate to the automatic generation and will not affect its generation times. See image 4-1.

NOTE:

The generation can take several minutes after pressing the button. If the email is not received immediately wait a couple of minutes before pressing the Generate Report button again. Multiple presses of the Generate Report button can cause multiple reports to be sent.


Notes


NOTES:

This section allows for custom notes to be made for the users benefit. For example a list of emails could be saved here for quick copy and paste. As with any field editing, the save button must be pressed to save any entered data or changes. See image 4-1.
