Generate a Report

To generate a report, follow the steps below:


1. Go to https://portal.flashvalet.com and log in to the Admin Portal.


2. On the left menu, click Reports.



3. Choose a report from the list.


4. Select a Location and choose from the Date Range options.


5.  Click Submit or use the Email to Me to receive the report via email. 


6. The report will appear in the Your Reports section as the data is compiled. Once the Status reads Complete, select the row to open the report. 



Date Range Options


The list of downloadable reports will have a Date Range option. Based on the type of data being generated the report will have either a Right Now, Single Date, or Date Range option. 




Right Now: The Right Now date range option provides real-time data so there will not be a date range selection drop-down. 


Single Date: The Single Date option allows the report to be generated for one day only. Today, Yesterday, or a specific date in the past are the options. 




Date Range:  Date Range offer multiple options to pull reporting data for a specific date or multiple days.



Please note some reports will have Date Range limitations. To avoid a data overload on the reporting server. Most Detail reports will have a range of one month or one week. 


  • Today: Generates data from the operating window time to right now. 
  • Yesterday: Previous date based on the operating window.
  • Past 7 Days: Previous 7 days.
  • Current MTD: From the 1st of the month to right now. 
  • Past 30 Days: Previous 30 days.
  • Specific Date: Specific date in the past. 
  • Date Range: A two calendar pop-up to select the start date and end date. 





Report Filter Options 

Most reports will have additional filtering options before generating the report. The filter and sort options will differ based on which report was selected. 



Logical Zones

Logical Zones can be configured for PARCS-enabled Flash locations. Typically they are set up when there are physically separate parking facilities or areas under one location.  



By default, All Logical Zones will be selected so the report will include data from all Logical Zones associated with the selected Location on one report. 


  • Every Logical Zone: Generates a separate report for each Logical Zone.
  • Specified Logical Zone: Generates a report for the selected Logical Zone only. 




Kiosks

A kiosk is a Flash PARCS kiosk or could be a cashier or valet payment station. The Kiosk filter option defaults to All Kiosks to include all configured kiosks for the location.


  • Every Kiosk: Generates a separate report for each Kiosk.
  • Specified Kiosk: Generates a report for the selected Kiosk only. 



Parking Type 


The Parking Type refers to Flash Products with the options Flash PARCS, Flash Valet, or Flash Mobile. If the location is using multiple Flash Products for one location, the report can filter out data per product.



Prices


Some Transactional reports will have the Prices filter option. 



Not all data point are included as a report filtering option. We recommend generating the xls version of reports and using the Excel filter to sort other data points.




Departments


Departments are created and assigned to Monthly, Membership, and Validation accounts. The Department filter option will be associated with Monthly Activity and eValidation reports. 

  • All Departments: Generates a report for all Departments available at the location.

  • Every Department: Generates a separate report for each Department.







Company





A Company can be assigned to Monthly or Membership account and is available as filtering option for activity reports. 



Kiosks


A kiosk refers to a PARCS kiosk or a valet kiosk when using the Valet Multi-Kiosk setup. A valet kiosk is the valet arrival/departure zone. This filter allows for All Kiosks which will run a combined report for all kiosks, or Every Kiosk: which will generate an individual report for every kiosk.






Employees


The employee filter is an option available for the Dynamic Lost Ticket by User report which allows you to sort by the user account that processed the Lost Ticket transaction.






Validators


The Validators filter allows for All Validators or selecting individual validators, as shown in the eValidation Detail by Date and Validator report. It filters by the validator user that issued or printed the Validation from the Validation Portal.







eParking Type


This filter refers to eParking agregators such as ParkWhiz and LAZGo. This is normally seen in reports that extract data for specific eParking transactions, such as the eParking Trans Detail report.






Columns for eParking reports will show the eParking Type, Arrival, Departure, Duration and Vehicle, and a total count for the selected Parking Account Type.




Ticket Types


The Ticket Types filter will display the configured ticket types for the selected location.
