Reports Groups ?

Topic: Reports Groups ?

Good day all Wialon users and developers,

I think it would be greatly appreciated if we could organize reports in groups like we do with units, geofences etc..

I can see that with many features in reports, (tachograph, fuel, trips, eco drive, etc...) sometimes a customer can have dozens of reports and it could be smart to organize them by features.

What do you think gurus ?

Thank You

Grouping as well as modernization of the reporting module is very much needed. Customers do not want large lists of reports that are using a naming convention to sperate them. Plus we need to be able to create a job to run all the reports in a group.

Yes I think both features noted would be very handy.

Dear partners, Road-Link JohnG
Thanks for your ideas.

The idea is clear, however I do not agree with the suggested solution.

So what is the purpose of having groups of report templates? As the main reason I figured out the one that there are a lot of templates and it is hard to navigate among them and when it is required to find the necessary one. For such a purpose I believe there is no need for template groups, but rather for some filtering of templates by a table type. What are your thoughts here?

By the way, do you use the search functionality to find the needed template among a number of templates with the same name?

Besides better navigation John mentioned that

John, could you please elaborate more here? What is the use case when you need to run several reports (united in a group) at one time? Are there any other applications for groups of templates besides this one and the one I described above?

I find this idea interesting, but more details are welcomed.
