How to Create a New Template

Analysts and Administrators can add templates for a variety of item types within all monitored environments.

CardioLog Analytics report templates are based on system item types. For example, to create a report template for SharePoint sites, select the Site item type.

Once a template has been made for a specific item type, that template will only appear under that section.

To determine an item type, see the Entity Type in item properties.

  1. In the Navigation pane, under Settings, click Templates to view all templates organized by item type.
  2. When you hover over an item type, an Add button will appear. Click Add.

Displaying Real Time Data From Within Your SharePoint Portal

The ability to export a CardioLog Analytics report into a SharePoint Web Part is available in order to display specific usage reports within designated SharePoint pages. For example, a localized wiki site manager might want to display a list of the most popular wiki pages on the site's homepage.
You can use the "CardioLog Usage Reports" SharePoint Feature with ad-hoc reporting, which enables the submission of usage queries directly from your SharePoint portal.
  1. After installing the "CardioLog Usage Reports" SharePoint Feature, each SharePoint page displays a link to CardioLog Analytics usage reports, accessible from the Site Actions menu.
  2. Select a desired report template in order to run a real time usage report for the page you are visiting. The report is displayed in a new browser window. The default report is based on the "Site Overview" template and displays real-time data for today.
    For more information see: View CardioLog Analytics Reports from SharePoint's "Site Actions" Menu
  3. The system administrator can create published report templates for pages (objects) in the portal. These templates will be available from the portal pages.
Note: Contact your system administrator in order to install the "CardioLog Usage Reports" SharePoint feature. For more information see How to install the CardioLog Usage Reports SharePoint Feature.
