Available reports

Reports described below are all available in the Reports > User reports section of the LNF online services.

Monthly usage and charge report

Select "User Usage Summary", choose the usage month, year and the user and click “retrieve data”.

The report is divided in 3 increasing levels of details:

  • Aggregate By Organization (different companies or universities that the user is working for)
  • Aggregate by Accounts (different billing accounts within each organization)
  • Billing Details (includes details of usage per room, per equipment, per item purchased)

Note that, at each level of details, there are three categories of charges:
* Room Charges The total number of days, entries and hours are displayed for each room (clean room, chem. room etc) and each account that the user has access to.
The distribution between the different accounts is taken from the apportion time-in-lab page (see Apportionment_Instructions).
* Tool Charges The tool charges are shown per tool and per account that the user has access to. The distribution between the different accounts is based on the account selected by the user at the time of reservation.
* Store Charges The store charges are shown per item and per account that the user has access to. The distribution between the different accounts is based on the data selected by the user at the time of purchase.
