How do I generate an Activity Report?

Get an overview of daily activity based on your connected inputs with the Activity Report.

Updated over a week ago

The Activity Report gives you a visual overview of machine usage based on data from Input 1 to 4 on your Raw devices. This report is especially useful for assets such as aerial work platforms. Depending on how the device is set up, it can record various actions like extending the supporting legs, activity in the basket, or extending the boom. Essentially, it can capture anything connected to input 3 and 4.

The visual summary can be exported and shared easily with customers. It's useful for resolving damage disputes or documenting weekend activities with the highest level of detail possible.

Read the report

The Activity Report contains two main elements:

  • Chart

  • Table

The chart gives you a visual representation of the machine activity during a day within your selected time period. Activity for any of the inputs are shown in minutes for each hour in the day.

For instance, if a report displays 17 minutes of activity on Input 2 at 9 AM, it indicates that the machine recorded a total of 17 minutes of activity on Input 2 during that hour. Each input is represented by a vertical bar, colored according to the label below it.

💡 Tip: You can always see what asset you are currently looking at by referring to the bottom right corner of the report.


The table underneath the chart summarizes the information from the chart. Here you can find the total activity for the day you are looking at. It provides totals of input activity, along with driving and total work day hours (for this report, Driving is when speed is over 15 km/h, and is based on unit configuration). The table also shows the time and location where the machine started and stopped during the given day.

Note: We display your own custom naming of the unit inputs when possible, so you can specify what a given input was set up to capture on a machine. This can be configured in Trackunit Verify

Understanding work day hours

Workday hours measure the time between the first and last recorded activity during a workday. For example, if the first activity record is at 6 AM and the last one for the day is at 2 PM, the workday hours will be shown as 8 hours (08:00), regardless of any activity in between.

To calculate workday hours, we prioritize using the best available input activity. This means if there's activity in operating hours (Input 1), the report will use that to determine the first and last time the machine was operated. If operating hours aren't available, it will use Input 2. If there's no activity on Input 2, it will check Input 3, then Input 4, and finally Driving.

Schedule the report

Once you have generated the report you can schedule it to be sent to people inside and outside your organization at a defined frequency. See how to schedule a report here
