When you create a new Project, provide as much detail as possible about the Project location and hours of operation. These details improve the reports that you can view within the Dashboard.
When a project is selected, the project name is displayed in the left pane. Be sure to create a unique name to help you identify your project at a later date. You can search for a Project by name using the Manager search feature. An example of a project name is the name of the company that purchased the Project.
Location information is used for event scheduling, data reporting and for specific, detailed information used by the project designer. Scheduling timed events for sunrise and sunset require an accurate description of the company location. The Location field is search enabled through Google Maps.
Use the Description field to include unique identifying details about the project. This could include, but is not limited to company nicknames, installation nuances or installation dates. This is the only non-required field in the Project Wizard.
- Once the Project Wizard is finished, add the business hours to the project:
Indicate the site opening and closing time.
Business days begin with Sunday. The first S in the list is for Sunday and the second S is for Saturday.
Room usage reports compare the in-usage time to the business hours of the Project.
- For Companies with multiple locations, we recommend creating a unique Project for each location.
- For the most accurate reporting, create a new Project when a secondary company location is in a different time zone than the first. The internal clock operates on a 24 hour scale and having two buildings with different business hours within the same Project, creates incorrect reporting values.
