Track a Project

Monitor provides project-based tracking of license usage. You might track a project, because you want to see how many licenses specific people or a team used, so you can make an estimate and budget for the next quarter or year. To track a project, you first must set it up and wait. The project data will be useful after a certain period of time has passed, for example a quarter or six months.

First, create the project.

  1. Go to the Admin tab and select Groups > Projects.


    Figure 1. Admin Page - Project
  2. Enter the Project Name and the Members you wish to monitor. The members will be listed as users in feature reports, for example. It’s likely that you will enter multiple users.

  3. Click Save Configuration and then Apply Configuration.
    At this point, you are done creating a project and you will need to wait a specified time period before the data rendered is meaningful.

To track a project, perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the History page and select Usage.


    Figure 3. Usage Report Selection
  2. Choose a report so you can evaluate the conditions of your project. You can evaluate data in daily plots, checkout statistics, efficiency statistics and many other reports. In this case, we will generate an efficiency statistics report. To do so, select Efficiency Statistics from the Usage menu.
  3. Select the Time Range, Tag or Feature and the Project to track

    In this case, we selected the Test project and the Feature (or License name) that we wished to track.

  5. Select the feature (license) you wish to track and click Apply.
  6. When you are done, click Submit.
    A report will generate that displays project status.
