This week in [D4H] Spotlight, the focus is on ensuring that your response team is revealing the most relevant data through the Custom Reports function.
Whether you are looking to uncover how many incidents of a specific type have happened within the last week or figuring out your team's attendance statistics over the last 6 months, using the Custom Reports feature can help you to sift through all your data to pull out the most relevant.
There are six types of reports to choose from - Attendance, Persons Involved, Vehicle Usage, Incidents, Events and Exercises. Once a report type is chosen, a number of sections become available in which information can be inputted to produce a report.
It is important to note that not all of the sections need to be completed. Various combinations can be selected, whichever is best for you to draw out the most relevant information. The time period for which the report should be created can also be selected, either by indicating a range in terms of hours, days, weeks months or years or inputting specific dates.
There are handy exportable documents available once the report has been run and it is also possible to save the Custom Report template so that it can be run at a later stage.
If you are a response team looking for a solution to manage your data, request an information pack by visiting decisions.d4h.org.
