Reports Overview

Currently, there are two co-existing reporting systems in evalink talos, the First Generation Reports and the Next Generation Reports.

By default, all new tenants now use the Next Generation Reports system. A Company Admin can switch between the two systems. Both systems are mutually exclusive and cannot be used simultaneously.

If a Company Admin switches from one system to another, all settings for the previously used system are saved on evalink talos and will be available again once a Company Admin switches back to the previously used system.

Next Generation Reports Overview

Next Generation Reporting provides access to much more customized versions of Event Log and Alarm reports, as compared to the previous version of reporting. It also adds other reporting options, such as new report templates.

When your company uses Next Generation Reporting system, the generation of CSV reports for events and event logs is still available.

For details about Next Generation Reporting, see section Next Generation Reporting Basics.
