Site Information Pane
When Report Generator opens, the Site Information pane displays with a predefined station selected. The pane displays metadata for the station, site photographs, and a map to the site (in Google Maps when available).
The Reports and Metadata Reports drop-down menus contain links to many commonly-used reports. Use the predefined reports "as-is," or as templates to create custom reports.
Hover over the screen image to see definitions of elements on the Site Information pane.
View Report Tab
When Report Generator opens, the View Report tab for the predefined station is active. This tab displays the results for a predefined report (for example, standard sensors, daily report, last 7 days) in tabular format. To edit or create a new report, select the Create/Modify Report tab.
Hover over the screen image to see definitions of elements on the View Reports tab.
Create/Modify Report Tab
This tab is where you define the contents of the report. Creating a report is as easy as 5 steps (hover over each numbered step for more information).
Hover over each number on the screen image to see how to create reports on the Create/Modify Report tab.
