Accessing and Understanding Reports

Accessing the Reports Tool

The Reports tool allows users to create and schedule four Report Types containing different kinds of information: Health Status, Geofencing, Power Loss and Log Reports. See the following section for more details.

This tool can be accessed by clicking on the Reports button located in the main toolbar of Commander. When opened, the Reports Module automatically displays the currently available Reports in a table that also includes Status and Parameters used to generate them. The list showing Available Reports is updated after creating new Reports.

Each Report type can be Instant or Scheduled. Instant Reports are immediately generated with information requested for a specific date and time range. Scheduled Reports gather the information for a specific time range daily, weekly, or monthly, for as long as required until the Report is finally generated.

The availability of the Reports varies depending on the recurrence specified during their creation: 1 day for Instant Reports, 3 days for Schedule Daily Reports, 1 week for Schedule Weekly Reports and 1 month for Schedule Monthly Reports.

Understanding Report Types

Commander offers four different types of reports that can be accessed from the Reports toolbar:

  • Health Status Reports show recorded alarms and devices requiring attention. In other words, they help users check the operating conditions of Cameras, Hard Drives and GPS instruments in Fleet vehicles.
  • Geofencing Reports monitor when Fleet Vehicles arrive at or depart from certain areas of interest such as schools, transit loops or even individual stops, based on the DVR’s downloaded historical GPS data.
  • Power Loss Reports record power loss events whenever the DVR boots up after not shutting down correctly.
  • Log Reports track the activities that Commander users perform, including login attempts, login by Groups or Roles, DVR configuration or firmware updates, report requests, archive requests, and several other tasks.
