The all-new Reports feature introduced in Appspace 8.1 provides organizations with the operational and behavioral information required to make data-driven decisions in order to optimize customer facilities and the Appspace service itself for a better user experience.

With the increased adoption and expansion of both Space Reservations and Visitor Management solutions, the initial release of Reports focuses on providing organizations with basic reporting capabilities that leverage raw metrics, utilization metrics, and trending information collected via Analytics, such as reservations, resources, visitors, and much more into a spreadsheet that can be downloaded immediately, or scheduled to run at any given time.

The new reporting feature provides the following general functionality:

  • Create, generate, and view reports based on predetermined report templates, or create your own customized report templates.
  • Schedule reports to run periodically, while being notified via email notifications, or enterprise messaging apps.
  • Download reports to .xlsx spreadsheets for external use.
  • Data filtering and Search capabilities. 

In this release, the following Report templates will be readily available to customers, with more being planned in upcoming releases:
