Custom Reports

Custom reports are predefined Axonize reports that provide combinations of data that are not available within user-defined reports.

custom reports

Note ‒ Custom reports always show either System or Admin in the Created By column. Typically, custom reports are the only type of reports created by a System or Admin user.

Custom reports work in the same way as other reports. When a custom report is run, it is automatically shared with the entire master application. When running a custom report, the report automatically displays for the relevant entity. For example, when running a custom report that relates to Devices, such as the Previous Month New Devices Report, the report results automatically display in the Devices tab. For example, as shown below.

Axonize provides three custom reports that you can tailor to meet your needs. These reports are –

Readings History Report

This report displays the readings history for multiple Devices or Products.

You can filter this report by date, by device or by product.

Usability Report

This report includes the new entities created in an Application and the total number of entities. The new entities include all Axonize entities, such as Devices, Products, Rules, Users, Dashboards and so on. The Total value represents the total of all entities created to date for the Application. The New value represents the number of entities created during the timeframe specified by the report’s filter (for example, the previous month). For example, if you specify a filter of Last Month, the report shows the total entities created to date including the end of the previous month, as well as the new entities created only during the previous month.

You can only filter this report by date range.

Communication Report

This report displays all the emails and SMSs that were sent in your system during a specified timeframe. This report can be filtered by date.
