Understanding Usage Patterns & Trends

User Dashboards are easy so that anybody, any Manager, can create and maintain their own Dashboards.

How can I set up the User Dashboard?

There are certain checkout status or historical usage reports that you will want to see from time to time, on-demand, with the most current data. There are a couple of ways to access Favorite reports:

  1. Clicking on a Favorite in your browser
  2. Clicking on a hyperlink in SharePoint, GoogleDoc, Word, PDF or “WIKI”.

Tip: Edit the name of the hyperlink with a “user-friendly” name.

LAMUM makes this easy.

What about Batch reports?

There are certain historical usage reports you may want to receive regularly: weekly, monthly, quarterly. Batch reports can be easy way to create, maintain or delete. These reports can be created automatically, at any time of day, and then either emailed to you or deposited to a specific folder. Batch reports can have user-friendly names.

How do I create Batch Reports?

The process is simple:

  1. Create the report you want.
  2. Click “Create Batch Report.”
  3. Give it a user-friendly name.
  4. Select Delivery type: email or folder. Done!

You can always go back and change the Report name or Delivery type.

Group Usage

Usage by tool or by individual is certainly important but usage by Group may be necessary too, especially if “Chargeback” is necessary.

A Group can be a:

  • Manager’s name
  • Project team
  • Site
  • Or any other way to Group engineers and monitor usage by that Group.

You will need an easy way to create and manage the Group:

  • Interactively
  • Off-line in an excel spreadsheet
  • Group using Active Directory
