Date range. These options allow you to select a preset date range for the report. If you need to build a report for a certain interval, you should specify it in the "From" and "To" fields.


Report type


1.Detailed. It is a detailed report by events. It contains the main information about events. If you select this report type, the other options are disabled.

2.Detailed (columns from Events page). It is the same as the previous report, but the report contains the data that is currently displayed in the table on the "Events" page. This way, you can include only the data that you want to view in the report.

3.Bytes printed - the report with data about the number of bytes sent to the printer.

4.Pages printed - the report about the printed pages.

5.Bytes and pages printed. This report contains the number of both printed bytes and printed pages.

6.Pages printed + cost. The report is the same as #4, but the print cost is calculated. The print cost calculation considerably influences how fast the report is built.

7.Bytes and pages printed + cost. It is the same as #5, but the print cost is calculated.

8.Printer failures. The report contains errors retrieved from printer drivers or via SNMP. The report may include messages about low toner level, paper out, opened printer cover, etc.

9.Cartridge: Toner level. The report works only for network printers with the SNMP monitoring option enabled. The program retrieves and logs information about a toner level. If a printer has color cartridges, the program stores info about these cartridges too. The report shows the last received toner level for the select time interval. Please, note, only a limited number of printers support SNMP monitoring. Sometimes, you should enable it in the printer settings.

10.Cartridge: Serial number. The program can retrieve a cartridge's serial number with a toner level. The report allows you to get a history of cartridges replacement. Please note that the cartridge data's storage depth depends on the storage depth of the event data.

11.Quotas: List. This report allows you to get info about all active quota rules.

12.Quotas: Used PIN codes or passwords. This report shows usage statistics of PIN codes or passwords defined in quota rules.
