A common misconception is that group reporting and analysis is only available with the Akixi 2000 and 3000 licenses. Whilst the Hunt Group Report is exclusive to these license levels, it is still possible to report on multiple groups within the same report using Akixi 1000. One of the best ways of achieving this is by utilising the Dashboard report.
The Dashboard report allows multiple reports to be viewed on a single screen. This allows up to six reports that are filtered on groups to be displayed on the Dashboard, this creates the ideal group overview allowing you to easily compare multiple sites and see how they are performing against each other.
Creating a dashboard
To create a dashboard, the reporting user must first access the reporting portal and follow the instructions below:
1. Access Reporting.
2. ‘Add Report’ icon.
3. Select ‘Dashboard’ from the style drop-down field.
4. Enter a custom report name.
5. Select a Dashboard layout (the design can be changed after the layout has been selected).
There are 11 different report layout options that can be used on Dashboard displays. Each number displayed on the preview images corresponds to a report.
6. Click ‘OK’.
After the ‘OK’ button has been selected, the Dashboard will be created and automatically opened in the reporting portal. There will not be any reports initially displayed on the Dashboard after it is created.
Once a Dashboard has been created, reports can then be added to the Dashboard by simply clicking on the Dashboard tile where the report is to be added.
Clicking on the empty Dashboard tile presents two options: an existing report can be chosen to be displayed, or alternatively a new report can be created to be added to the Dashboard report.
