How to generate a detentions report

Class Charts allows you to create powerful detention reports that can track how detentions are being issued through your school.

To start creating your own detention reports, click on the Analytics tab at the top of the page.

You will appear on the Analytics home page. Select the Detentions option from the menu on the left hand side.

First, select the date range that the report will cover by clicking on the Date range field. A date picker will appear that allows you to select from preset date ranges or a custom range of your choice. Click on the Apply button once you have decided.

Next, select a Primary breakdown for your report so that the results can be broken down in to specific categories. Select a breakdown option from the drop down menu.

Once a primary breakdown has been selected, an optional secondary breakdown can be used to further categorise the results of the report.

If a secondary breakdown has been applied, you can also apply a tertiary breakdown to your report.

If the detentions report is to general for your needs, you can apply various filters that refine the results. To apply a filter, tick a filter option checkbox and select the subcategories of your choice.

You can then generate your report by clicking the Generate report button, or export the report to an Excel spreadsheet by clicking the Export to excel button.

A generated report will be displayed underneath the report options and buttons.

By default, detention reports will display the number of times a detention was issued. If Analyse detention length instead of count is ticked, the report will display the total duration of a detention instead.


Accessing detailed results

Once a report has been generated, you may wish to see a specific result in the report in more detail. To do this, click on the detailed report icon next to a entry in the report.

You will be redirected to the results of the report category in the detentions manager.


Saving reports

If you find that you are constantly reapplying and running the same reports on a regular basis, you can save the report criteria for easier future use. To do this, set up the report critera to your desired preferences and click on the Save for later button in the bottom right hand corner of the page.

A popup will appear prompting you to name the report. Enter a name and click on the OK button to save the report.

Saved reports will appear along the top of the page. Clicking on a saved report will reapply the report's breakdown and filter options, which can then be tweaked further.
