Select Frequency and Time Period

This tutorial shows how to use the Frequency and Time Period selections in Report Generator. Frequency and Time Period are interactive; options change depending on the frequency or time period selected.

The Frequency selection determines how often data is supplied to a report in Report Generator. The Time Period selection determines the duration of the report and the number of days to include in the report.

The example uses a Standard data report (Snow Depth) to change the frequency and time period of data displayed in the View Report tab.

  1. Start Report Generator. The application will open with the Mt. Hood Test Site selected (the default).

  2. In the Reports drop-down list, select Snow Depth. The report displays in the View Report tab with daily data listed for the last 30 days.

  1. To change the frequency of when data is reported, select the Time Period tab.

  2. In the Time Period tab, change the frequency from Daily to Monthly

  3. Change the Time Period from Last 30 Days to Current Calendar Year.

  4. Select Apply. The data in the View Reports tab changes to reflect a reporting frequency of monthly and a time period of the current calendar year.


This completes the Select Frequency and Time Period tutorial. Now would be a good time to review the Select Unit of Measurement tutorial.
