Automation Report Explained

Clicking on any of the bars will open the Automation Report.

The report provides you with a visualisation of how jobs were created last week, categorising them into the way in which the data was entered.


Week on week comparison

The report also includes a week by week comparison on the level of automation within your operation and the break down of where data is coming from into your system. This provides further insight on the data entry efficiency of your operation over a period of time going back up to a month.


Which customers are costing the most time

To assist you in knowing where to focus your automation efforts, the report lists up to 10 of your most manual customers.
Note: You can access more details across all customers through CartonCloud BI
