Historical information about alarms, patrols and other events is available in the form of reports. To open available reports list, choose Reports from the main menu.
There are the following report types:
Each report type can be generated on demand on the screen, in a printable format or to a CSV file. Reports can also be generated automatically and sent by e-mail periodically.
Choosing a report from the reports panel opens a new panel with this report.
Every report panel contains filters (search criteria) and a table with report results.
To generate a report with data meeting the pre-set criteria, click the > button. To clear criteria, click the X button.
Reports displayed on screen or generated in a printable format have a 1,000 record limit. It means only the first 1,000 records meeting the criteria are shown. The limit does not apply to CSV files, which always contain full results.
Like other lists, report results can be sorted by every column. Clicking a column heading sorts table by that column or switches between ascending and descending sort order.
To generate the report in a printable format or in a CSV file (i.e. export the report), choose the relevant option in the tools menu under the cog icon (in the upper right corner). There are two export options:
This report contains all significant events which had happened in the system. They can be divided into the following categories:
The events and alarms report has the following columns:
When a filter is defined (i.e. a search criterion for a column is set), records with a corresponding column empty will not be returned.
ActiveTrack devices add position information to some of the events they send. This information is available in the CSV format of the Events and alarms report. There is also an additional option in the tools menu (under the cog icon), to show the currently listed events on a map. It opens a new browser window with the trace of the device marked. All events form a single trace, so you should use the Device filter in order to get meaningful results.
NOTE: Devices connected to ActiveView regularly send technical events, such as TEST. The events are not listed in the Events and alarms report by default. In the case of ActiveTrack devices, these events can contain position information. In particular, there is the LOCATION technical event, which only purpose is to inform ActiveView about the device’s position. If you want these events in the Events and alarms report (i.e. to be able to see them on a map), ask your ActiveView administrator.
This report aggregates basic information about alarms.
The alarms report has the following columns:
ActiveTrack devices can be configured to add position information to alarm events. This information is available in the CSV format of the Alarms report. There is also an additional option in the tools menu (under the cog icon), to show the currently listed alarms on a map. It opens a new browser window with the trace of the device marked. All alarms form a single trace, so you should use the Device filter in order to get meaningful results.
NOTE: This report does not group alarms by site, like the alarms list and alarms browser. Even if two or more alarms from a single site were detected in succession, they are listed separately.
This report is based on the same data as the Alarms report, but the data are aggregated. The report contains totals for every alarm type, for every company, site or device (depending on user choice).
In the Alarms summary report, columns correspond to different types of alarms. Rows correspond to companies, sites or devices, depending on the grouping chosen by the user in report parameters. There is also a final row with totals for every alarm type (summary).
The alarms included in sums can by filtered by the following criteria:
This report shows information about finished patrols (either successful or not).
The Patrols report has the following columns:
Unsuccessful patrols are highlighted in red (i.e. the patrols with at least one unsuccessful checkpoint).
Each report can be configured to be sent by e-mail. To open periodic reports list, select Reports → Periodic Reports in the main menu.
You can create a new periodic report and edit or remove an existing one.
Every periodic report has the following properties:
E-mails with periodic reports contain report results in a printable format and in a CSV file (attached). For periodic reports to work, a correct e-mail configuration is needed (see E-mail configuration for details).
