    Intota: Management Reports

    • Product: Intota

    What types of resource management reports are available in Intota?

    You can generate reports detailing information from your Intota profile by clicking Reports on the menu bar and then selecting Management Reports in the submenu:
    Reports menu
    You can also use the Administrative section of your Intota home page to access Management Reports.

    From the Management Reports page, use the Select Report drop-down menu to choose the report you want to run.
    Management Reports list

    See below for a description of each report.
    After you select the report, you can add a custom Report Name if you need to distinguish between various reports. Then click Request Report.
    You will receive an email when the report has been generated and is available in the Reports page. (You can also click Refresh List to see if your report has already been generated and been made available.) Usually the report is available in less than a minute; even large reports can be completed within five to 10 minutes, but the actual time will depend on many factors including how many reports are in the queue ahead of your report and the amount of Intota data for that specific report.
    Reports are available as compressed (.zip) files. Click the report link to save the file to your computer. Once on your computer, you will need to uncompress (unzip) the file. Some computers automatically decompress a file when you try to open it; if yours does not, you may need to use an unzipping application. Once unzipped, the report is a comma-separated values (.csv) file, unless it's an SFX report, in which case it is a tab-delimited text (.txt) file.
    Reports are best viewed and manipulated with a spreadsheet program (such as Excel), although a text or database program will also work. With a spreadsheet program, you can more easily sort, filter, and delete rows or columns to display the information pertinent to your needs.
    Each report is available on the Management Reports page for 72 hours (three days) after it is generated. If you, or someone else in your library, generate the same type of report within 72 hours, both will appear on the list; just remember that the older one may contain incorrect data if any changes were made to your library's holdings between the times of the two reports.
