What is the need?

Admira’s Digital Signage platform allows the extraction of reports from the channel, based on the broadcast data of content passes registered in the system (with the sending of statistics active in the circuit players):

https://new.admira.mobi/admin/manage/report

This section shows a list of the report templates created in the project.

Report list

Our Reports tool allows you to collect and extract the information on your circuit in a presentation and table format in a personalized way, adapting to your needs.

The user will have free preparation of the reports to be generated, being able, on the one hand, to choose the players that are likely to appear in the report, and on the other, to select the information elements that are going to be collected from those teams.

Create report templates

Create report

There is a wide variety of options for creating Report Templates in the system, which must be selected based on the needs or requirements of the channel.

Each type of report template offers specific options for selecting search parameters and output data to display in the report file.

Report Types

There is a wide catalog of report typologies that are tailored according to the data that is required. We group them into three types:

  • Occupancy: Shows the screen share of content for a year. We understand the screen share as the percentage of time that the content is in a player with respect to its assigned time.
  • Player: Collects circuit information regarding:
  • Registration of players / operability / criteria. Registration of players, operation and segmentation of the player on the platform
  • Content distribution / programming. Content distributed and programmed in the player
  • Admiradesk. Follow-up of incidents operated through Admiradesk
  • Statistics: Collects content broadcast passes and advertising campaigns. This type of report requires prior activation of statistics collection, available from the Admira SaaS BUSINESS License. It is possible to activate it on the entire circuit or only for a particular group of players.
  • Project Templates: Here all the favorite templates that we generate will be saved so that we can use them without having to modify the default ones again. It will only appear if we have previously created at least one Project Template.

Project Templates

The Project Templates tab displays the report templates created in the project that have been saved with the “Save as template” option active.

Create and use favorite templates

During the process of preparing a report, we will always have the option to save the parameter configuration as a Project Template. To do this, you must check the “Save as template” box before clicking “Save”.

Project template

After creating our first Project Template, it will appear as the first report type selection option when creating a new report. Here all the favorite templates that we generate will be saved so that we can use them without having to modify the default ones again.

These templates are editable and can be removed from the panel at any time.

Filter

There is a filter option on the report home page, it allows you to filter the report templates visible to the user. To apply a filter, click on the magnifying glass icon in the upper right corner.

Filter options are name, report type, and owner (user who created the template).

Filter

Permissions on Reports

It is possible to limit the visibility of report templates for limited platform users who are assigned a lower level in the Project User Hierarchy. Likewise, the Management permissions corresponding to the actions on report templates (own / from other authors) can be configured in the role: create, edit, delete.

Note

In addition to the View All permission (report templates created in the project), there is a more restrictive permission that allows you to view reports by other authors of the same role assigned to the user. This permission must be requested from support, in case it is necessary to mark it in the configuration of a custom role.

Report Files

Within the Reports permissions section, which also depends on a permission, the permissions related to the report files have been segmented. In this way, the options for Download (.xls / .pdf), Delete and Create report files can be shown / hidden independently.

Filtering user permissions

Finally, in addition to the role permissions configuration tool, the system allows you to limit, from the project users section, the visibility of report templates (by option All / Specific Checkbox).

Grouped campaign reports

The platform incorporates a new tool for grouping reservations or campaigns created in the project, in order to later be able to extract the data on passes issued from the contents of various campaigns in a single broadcast report.

Campaign grouping section

Add main campaign

Clicking on the “Create campaign group” icon displays a form in a pop-up window, with the fields for the name of the group campaign and its description (optional).

To add campaigns to the created group, click on the + icon and search for the campaign in the selector.

Campaign grouping

Generation of emission reports

The grouping of campaigns has a direct implication in the generation of the reports. Once a grouping has been carried out, it will not be possible to generate a report only on the main campaign, but on the grouped ones.

The main characteristics of the reports are the following:

  • If the report is generated on a main campaign:
  • The passes shown will be the sum of all the campaigns, the father and all the daughters
  • The contents shown will be those of the entire group of campaigns
  • The data of the campaign will be that of the parent campaign
  • The name of the campaign will be the one entered in the Administration section of the parent campaign, in the “name” field. If it is not modified, the name of the report will appear
  • If the report is made on a grouped campaign:
  • The passes shown will be that of the selected campaign
  • The contents shown will be those of the entire selected campaign
  • The data of the campaign will be those of the selected campaign
  • The name of the campaign will be the one entered in the Administration section, in the “name” field. If it is not modified, the name of the report will appear

Tutorial: Procedure to create and generate reports

Note

You can find this and other tutorials at the Digital Signage Academy.

Once we know what type we want to extract, the procedure is as follows:

  • 1
    We choose the type of report we want to get. In it, we customize the players and the data to display. This will create a template for that type of report that we can modify whenever we want.
  • 2
    Once the parameters have been set in said template, we will be able to consult the system for the requested data. Keep in mind that this will take some time.
  • 3
    Once this period has passed and the creation of the report has been confirmed, we can export the report with the data collected in an Excel file, PDF or view it on the portal itself with the web view option

Let us see the steps of the process step by step:

1. Create template

To do this, we click on the “Create Template” button, located at the top right.

Create report

We select what type of report we want to create.

Create occupation report

In the name section, we put the name with which we want to save the Report. With the “checkbox” on the right, we can mark the report we are creating as a template.

Information

The important thing is at the bottom. In the “Options” drop-down menu we can select the conditions for filtering the elements (depending on the report option we have chosen before), which we will add with the “Add” button. This will allow us to define which players are going to be included in the report.

Options

Now, in the same way, we add the fields that we want to appear in the Report tables. The “Data to display” will be organized in several tables, the choice options will depend on the type of report that we are creating. It is possible to order the rows of the table by dragging the fields (drag & drop).

We click on “Next” and choose the report format: Tables (table format) or Report (presentation format) and finally on “Save”, to create the Report.

Report format

2. Create report

At the moment, what we have done is prepare the concepts of the report (which we can save as a favorite template, as we have commented before), we still need to query the system.

For that, we return to the main page of the Reports section, and we will see that now in the Reports table we have a new element.

Now what interests us is to extract the information that we have prepared to extract. To do this, we click on the icon of the “Reports” sheet of paper.

Reports

On the pop-up window, we will click on “Create report” to generate it.

Channel report

It will ask for a name. We write it and click “Save”. Now the query will start to be made and the report will be created, for which the system will need some time.

Report channel

3. Export report

Once this time has elapsed, if we click on the sheet icon again to see the generated reports, we will find something like this:

Channel report

Now we can export the report in an Excel file, a PDF or view it on the portal itself with the web view option.

As we generate reports of this selected style, we will see a list with all of them and their creation information.

Edit report

We can edit at any time the fields that we have defined before by clicking on the pencil (edit template). In this way, when generating a new one, the data to be displayed will be different.

This modification can help us in specific cases, such as if a report is generated with the entire inventory of players from January 2020 and in February you want to get the same but from that period. In that case, only by editing the date in the report we can obtain the data without having to create a new one from scratch.
