Instant Reports

A Custom Report is one where you choose your dates, locations and formats. This is the option you will most commonly choose.

On this screen, we have also included a couple of commonly used report formats…

  • Min-Max Last 7 Days
  • Min-Max + Extremes Last 7 Days
  • Min-Max + Extremes Last 30 Days
If you would like any of these preset formats, simply click the Run button, wait for the report to generate, and then download it,

1. Select the report type

This determines the type and amount of data that will be shown on the report:

Min-Max

A simple report showing the daily minimum and maximum temperatures

Min-Max + Extremes

The daily minimum and maximum plus a list of any out of range temperatures.

RECOMMENDED

All Readings

All readings taken during the period

If you have more than one location, you can choose which you would like included on the report.

PDF Format

The PDF format is the most useful option. It can be easily viewed on all computers and mobile devices. It can be printed on a standard piece of paper. It can also be easily shared with others. 

Excel Format

XLSX Is the native Microsoft Excel format. This will create an editable spreadsheet of values. This particularly useful if you need to sort or edit data. You will probably only use this with the All Readings report type.

There is a 3rd option, CSV, that is only used by expert users. If in doubt, go with PDF.
