REPORTING

Here are some important facts about the reporting functionality. First off, keep in mind that the primary entity in calculating occupancy is the workplace, not the computer, in other words, the occupancy of your workplaces is reported, not your computers. Any subset of users and\or computers you select and rerun from the reporting interface, will be divided by the original number of workplaces.

Does this mean that you cannot calculate the occupancy of your computers? No! You can!

It does mean that when you want to calculate the occupancy of your computers, you must select the computers from your Active Directory, and then each computer will implicitly represent a workplace.

It also means that if you want to recalculate the occupancy of a subset of computers from the reporting interface itself, you must select the workplaces, and not the computers.

If you do pick computers, a recalculation will be done of the original total of the workplaces and the smaller subset of the computers you picked - a recalculation will be done of the occupancy of the original workplaces, whereby only the logons of the smaller subset of computers (or users) you picked will be taken into account.

Below are the scenario’s and accompanying howto’s to obtain the information you want from the occupancy reporting functionality.


WORKPLACE OCCUPANCY

How to obtain workplace occupancy depends on whether or not your organization uses roaming laptops or not.

-- Your organization does not use roaming laptops, but only computers (either laptop or desktop) that are static, e.g. physically bound to a workplace. If you have added these computers to your map, you can select the country, city, building or floor you want to evaluate, and run your query. If you have not added these computers to your map, you can select the computers from your Active Directory, and run your query. The reporting functionality will automatically create a workplace for each computer. There will be a one on one relationship between your workplaces and your computers.

-- Your organization uses roaming laptops. In this case, since the location of your roaming laptops needs to be calculated, you must run your query from your map. The reporting functionality will not automatically create a workplace for each computer. It will only evaluate the workplaces you have added to your map. There will be no one on one relationship between your workplaces and your computers.


COMPUTER OCCUPANCY

In this case it is irrelevant whether or not the computers in your organization are roaming or not, and whether or not your organization has desktop computers, laptops, or both, simply because the whereabouts of your computers is not relevant, only their occupation is.

-- In this case you must select static computers, and then the computers from your Active Directory, and run the query. The reporting functionality will automatically create a workplace for each computer. There will be a one on one relationship between your workplaces and your computers.
