What is the need?
Admira’s Digital Signage platform allows the extraction of channel reports, from the broadcast data of content passes registered in the system (with the sending of active statistics in the players of the circuit)
This section shows a list of the report templates created in the project.
Our Reporting tool allows you to collect and extract in presentation and table format information from your circuit in a customized way, adapted to your needs.
The user can freely prepare reports, being able, on the one hand, to choose the players covered by the report and, on the other, to select the information elements to be collected from the players.
Create report templates
There are a wide variety of options for creating Report Templates in the system, which must be selected according to 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.
There is an extensive catalogue of report typologies that are tailored to data requirements. We group them into three types:
The Project Templates tab shows the list of report templates created in the project that have been saved with the “Save as template” option active.
Creating and using favorite templates
During the process of creating or editing a report, we will always have the option of saving the parameter settings as a Project Template. To do this, you must check the “Save as template” box before saving changes.
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 also editable and can be removed from the panel at any time.
The search tool 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.
The filter options are name, report type and owner (user who created the template).
You can limit the visibility of report templates to limited platform users who are assigned a lower level in the project’s User Hierarchy. Likewise, the Management permissions corresponding to actions on report templates (own / from other authors) can be setup at the user role with customized options (create, edit, delete).
Within the Reports permissions section – available depending on user rol setup – permissions related to report files management have been segmented. In this way, options for Download (.xls / .pdf), Delete and Create report files can be independently shown / hidden.
Filtering user permissions
Finally, in addition to the role permission configuration tool, the system allows limiting, 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 subsequently extract the data of passes issued from the contents of several campaigns in a single broadcast report.
Campaign group section:
Clicking on the “Create campaign group” icon presents a form in a pop-up window, with the name fields 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.
Generation of emission reports
ampaign groups have a direct implication in the generation of the reports. Once a campaign group has been created, reports cannot be generated for the main campaign only but for the grouped ones.
Main characteristics of the reports are the following:
Tutorial: Report creation and generation Procedure
The procedure, once it is known what type of data is wanted, is as follows:
To be guided through the procedure step by step on the platform, click here.
1. Create a template
To do this, click on the button “Create Template”, located in the upper right corner.
Select what type of report you want to create.
In the name section, enter the name under which we want to save the Report. With the checkbox on the right, you can mark the template you are creating as a favourite template.
The important options are at the bottom. From the “Options” drop-down menu, select the conditions for filtering the items (depending on the report option we have chosen) and add using the “Add” button. This will allow you to define which players are to be covered by the report.
Now, in the same way, add the fields that we want to appear in the Reporting tables. The “data to display” will be organized into several tables. The options you can choose from will depend on the type of report we are creating. You can sort the rows in the table by dragging the fields (drag & drop).
Click on “Next” and choose the format of the report: Tables (table format) or Report (presentation format) and finally “Save” to create the Report.
2. Generate Report
For now, what you have done is prepare the concepts of the report (which you can save as a favourite template, as mentioned above). Now, you need to consult the system.
To do that, return to the main page of the Reporting section, and you will see that now in the Reports table you have a new item.
Now what you want to do is extract the information you have prepared. To do this, click on the paper sheet icon “Reports”.
In the pop-up window, click on “Create Report” to generate it.
You will be prompted to give it a name. Enter the name and click on “Save”. The request will now begin and the report will be created. The system will need some time to do this.
3. Report export
Once this time has elapsed, if you click on the sheet icon again to see the generated reports, you will find something like this:
You can now export the report to an Excel file, a PDF file or view it in the portal with the web view option.
As we generate reports using this selected style, you will see a list of them and their creation data.
You can edit the fields that we have defined at any time by clicking on the pen (edit template). In this way, when you generate a new one, the data to be displayed will be different.
This modification can help you in specific cases, such as generating a report with the entire player inventory for January 2020 when you want the same data but for February. In this case, you can just edit the date in the report to get the data without having to create a new report from scratch.
How do I enable the collection of broadcast statistics from my player?
The Broadcast Statistics Reporting Service is available under the Admira SaaS Business License. If you would like to activate it, please contact your Project Manager or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
