How to create reports that impress your ELK Stack users with Skedler?

Time is a very scarce commodity.  Whether you provide a ride sharing service or a networking security monitoring service or financial analytics service or IT infrastructure monitoring service, time-pressed users expect your service to proactively deliver clear, actionable information at the right time.   They do not have time to check on dashboards every time to get their information.  Sending actionable reports is one easy solution to this problem.

But users do not just want a random set of data, they want to be impressed. They are looking for clear, concise information in a format that is easy to understand.  The delivered information should help them decide what they need to next.   There are at least three aspects that need to be considered:

  • What is the right information and the right design?
  • When should the information be delivered?
  • How should the information be delivered?

Skedler v2.3, which is now available from the Free Trial page, includes tools that provide you with greater flexibility to tackle the What and When aspect of information delivery.  Let us look at some of these new tools available for your smart-layout-speed arsenal.

Automate Summary Reports using Flexible Time Windows

Flexible Time Windows

Send daily reports every evening with data from 8 am – 5pm. Or email summary reports in the morning with data from 6 days ago until yesterday. The possibilities are endless with the new time window capability available in Skedler Premier Edition.

Send Impressive Reports with Smart Chart Layout

Smart Chart Layout in Skedler

Impress your customers and users with beautiful, well crafted reports. With the new Smart Chart option available in Advanced Edition (available currently in Linux only at this time), report layout is automatically optimized based on the page size and chart size.  You will no longer see charts getting split across pages.   All it takes is just a check box in Skedler!

Faster Report Generation

Skedler is now faster and more optimized than ever before. The report generation algorithm has been enhanced to detect the completion of dashboard rendering and immediately send out the report instead of waiting for a fixed dashboard loading time. The result is that the Skedler can now deliver actionable reports to users quicker than ever before.

We have more capabilities planned for the next release of Skedler that would make it even easier for you to address the What, When, How aspect of delivering information to your users.  With that said, Skedler v2.3 has more features to assist you.
