Overview

Report Items are the backbone of the SmarterStats application, and every statistic taken from your log files (e.g. Top Paths) is considered a Report Item. Report Items contain a single table of information and optionally, a chart.

Standard Reports and Custom Reports contain various Report Items. For example, a "Webmaster Report" would have a "Top Path" report item, a "Top Entry Pages" report item, etc.

SmarterStats provides a Report Item tree on the left sidebar. Using this sidebar, end-users know all the Report Items that are available for use.

Note: Not all reports are available for users and/or domains. Consult your system or domain administrator for report availability.

Formulating the Graph

You will see a calendar of the current month and fields with drop down menus on the right side.

NOTE: Not all of the options below will be available for each report type.

  • Calendar - You can choose any amount of time you wish to base your report on—day, week, or month.
  • Rows - You can choose how many rows of usernames you would to have appear—10, 100, 500, 1000, 10,000.
  • Sort - This allows you to choose how you want the different usernames sorted. Then you can select if you want it sorted in Ascending or Descending order.
  • Chart - allows you to select which type of graph you want your data displayed in.
  • Value 1 - This gives you the option of which values you want to use in your graph—None, Total Disk, Junk Email, Deleted Items.
  • Value 2 - You can choose if you would like to add a second value to your graph.
  • Filter Set - Select a filter set that you have already created. To create a filter set, click the Settings button on the main tool bar, then select Filter Sets from the My Settings folder in the left tree view.
  • Spider - You can select from the drop down menu a specific Spider/Bot to track.

Once you have the data which you want shown in the report, click the Get Report button on the right side.

Across the action toolbar there are four icons—Add Favorite, Email, Export, and Print.

  • Add Favorite - This will allow you to add this report to your favorites list.
  • Email - This will allow you to send another person your report.
  • Export - This will allow you to export your report to a file.
