Usage Reporting Dashboard

The Usage Reporting feature allows a user to enter total usage for a specific asset for a specific Reporting Date.

Weekly, on Fridays, the Reporting Date updates anew and users are encourage to immediately, and thus consistently, enter the total meter reads or miles for applicable assets.

Note - if an asset does not have reporting possible, e.g. it has no electric or fuel-powered engine, it can be excluded from the reporting and utilization calculation process. See below.

The first column indicates the Asset details:

  • Your Asset ID (from the user)
  • IronUp Asset ID (auto-assigned) - coming soon
  • Manufacturer andModel name, if available. If this has not been supplied, it will be denoted as "Unknown Model Name"

Next, the user is given controls to put in the total usage. The user has the ability to select the unit of measure - "Hours" or "Miles".

Next, the Reporting Date is indicated to the user. These dates are one week apart and it represents the beginning of the window of time they can enter date. 

The Usage Reporter (or User) column indicates which user entered the usage report.

Next, the Project column shows which Project this asset is attached to.
