Reports

Aggregation Options

After generating a report from the Analytics Reports page, users can select from measurement aggregation functions in the header. Aggregation functions include None, Average, Minimum, and Total. The Minimum and Total aggregation options have been added to complement the Minimum Productivity and Total Productivity real-time dashboard panels, and are available for productivity reports. In addition, the selected aggregation is performed instantly on the report without having to generate the report again, for a faster user experience.

Print or Save PDF

Users can easily print analytics reports or save them as PDF files. A Print / PDF button is available after a report is generated. This button reformats the report for a standard sheet of paper with a printer-friendly color palette and opens the print dialog. To save the report as a PDF file on the desktop instead of printing it, select “PDF” as the printer destination. The “PDF” option is available on most modern desktop web browsers.

Analytics Reports

While the real-time dashboard analytics panels focus on the current active shift, historical analytics can reveal weeks or months of business trends and facilitate comparisons among successive shifts over time, or among multiple measurements in each shift. Analytics such as compliance, utilization, and productivity are compiled by shifts according to a custom shift schedule for the selected date range. Optionally, results for each measurement can be averaged per shift to provide a high-level overview.

Daily Spot Value

The Daily Spot Values report was inspired by temperature logs used to record temperatures for coolers and freezers that were manually collected at specific times each day. These logs are used to document compliance with Food Safety Management (HACCP) best practices. With Swift Sensors, temperature collection is fully automated, and the Daily Spot Values report can produce weekly or monthly temperature logs for up to 6 custom times during each day. The report interface offers options for some common times of the day, but you can also select “Custom times” and enter your own.

The Daily Extremes report is similar to the Daily Spot Values report, but instead of showing spot values during times of the day, it calculates the daily minimum, average, and maximum values. The Daily Extremes report is optimized for a monthly reporting cycle, with each page focused on one measurement, but a custom date range is fully supported. Please note that while these reports are ideal for temperature data reporting, they can just as easily be used with other measurements including humidity, vibration, and electric current.

Both reports include notes that were entered during each day. This is very useful for customers who use the notes feature to document root cause and action taken to remedy a problem.

As with all analytics reports, you can print these reports or save them as a PDF file by choosing PDF as your printer destination in the print dialog box. The name of the PDF file will now default to the analytics report name followed by the date range.

Date range selection has also been enhanced with a Monthly Report dropdown, where you can select from the twelve most recent completed months. As before, you can always select a custom date range which now defaults to starting from the first day of the current month to the current day.

Daily Extremes

This report calculates the daily minimum, average, and maximum values for measurements that output scalar values, such as temperature. The Daily Extremes report is optimized for a monthly reporting cycle, with each page focused on one measurement, but a custom date range is fully supported.

Each page features the following information:

A graph with three lines plotting the daily extreme values in the selected date range. The minimum, average, and maximum lines are situated at the bottom, middle, and top of the graph, respectively.
If the measurement has a threshold, the graphed lines are color coded by daily threshold status and all threshold boundaries are also plotted in the graph and shown in the header.
For each day in the date range, a table shows the date, the minimum, average, and maximum values, and notes.
If one or more notes exist for the day, the notes column includes the time each note was taken, the measurement value at that time, and the note itself. Notes are useful to document the root cause and corrective action taken to remedy a problem.

As with all analytics reports, you can print this report or save it to a PDF file by choosing PDF as your printer destination in the print dialog box. The name of the PDF file will now default to the analytics report name followed by the date range.

Date range selection has also been enhanced with a Monthly Report dropdown, where you can select from the twelve most recent completed months. As before, you can always select a custom date range which now defaults to starting from the first day of the current month to the current day.
