Reports Output

Based on analytics selection (Select Activity filter), the report gets generated each with a different set of details. Let's understand the information you get on selecting each.

Download Analytics

Download Analytics gives an account of files pushed from Dashboard, providing the download status information for all the files published to the devices in a group or on individual devices. As a result, following details show up:

  • Device Name: Name of device on which file(s) are published
  • Total Files Published: No. of files currently published to the device
  • Total Files Downloaded: No. of files downloaded on device after being published
  • Total Failed Downloads: No. of files that have failed to download
  • Failed Files List: List of files which have failed to download. If there are more than 2 files, count of files is shown and clicking on the count shows a dialog which displays all the list of files that have failed to download.

Hence, the report gives a summarized view of the total published files on the device and out of them how many have successfully downloaded and how many have failed.

Failed Download Analytics

Failed Download Analytics provides list of files that could not be downloaded.

Although this information is also displayed in Download Analytics, but this report gives some more details related to failed downloads.

Following details show up:

  • File Name: Name of the file that failed to download
  • Failure Reason: Gives reason why file failed to download
  • Retry Count: No. of retries that were done to download the file

Thus, the report lets you analyze the failure reasons for download which can be timely acted upon

All this information lets the admin judge the usage patterns of files by users.

Known Issues

There are certain features which are known. We are working on them and will make them available in the next updated versions:

  1. A file that is published by the user on a device that has no internet connectivity is not taken into count
  2. Device search - In Select Device filter, if a file is positioned lower in the list, then search by typing device name does not bring up that file in results. If user loads all devices, then search works fine with keywords
