Dashboard Details

Now, when you click Reports in the left navigational panel, instead of getting the option to download a full savings report, you’ll see your ParkMyCloud reporting dashboard. This provides a quick view of cloud provider, team and resource costs, and information regarding your ParkMyCloud savings. At the top of the reporting dashboard, two drop-down menus are provided for selecting the report type and the time period. The default selections are Dashboard and Trailing 30 Days, which is what you see after clicking on reporting in the left navigational menu. Click on a drop-down menu to choose other available options.

Underneath the Report Type drop-down menu, you will see several options that are broken down into additional sections (Financial, Resource, Administrative, etc.) Click on an option in the menu to view that specific report within the dashboard. These reports can also be shown using a variety of time periods. Reports may be exported as an CSV or Excel file by clicking on the desired option on the right of the Report and Time Period drop-down menus as well.

Click on Legacy if you would prefer to still use the previous reporting functionality rather than the new reporting dashboard in ParkMyCloud. A pop-up window will appear for selecting the start and end date along with the type of legacy report. As part of this change, we have also moved Audit Logs underneath reporting. To access this option, you will need to select Reports in the left navigational panel and then Audit Log.
