With statistics, you can see how your rentals are performing on different levels. Rentman's statistics module allows you to create custom views that display the statistics relevant to your business.-

Adding a new statistics view

In the statistics module, you can create preset views, which can be saved to view at a later point. The steps below will explain how to set up a new set of statistics and what points you need to keep in mind. Scroll down for a list of statistic types and applications.

  1. Navigate to Statistics from the left navigation column.

  2. To start, click on the + Add button.

  3. Select a statistic type in the window that opens. This determines from what elements you will see the data. You can find a description of each in the list 'statistic types and applications' (above).

  4. Enter a name and description for the view you are creating. You can adjust this later. Use ALT + S to save your progress and continue.
  5. Navigate to the Statistics tab.

    You will get a data table with preset columns of the type you have selected in step 3.

  6. Change the column set if you want to see information of another sort. The column set is a preset of columns specific to one topic (revenue, maintenance, subhire, etc.).

  7. Change columns. Column views can be customized by adding or deleting certain columns.

    Delete a column by clicking on the Down.png icon right of the column title and select the option from the fold out menu.
    Add a column by clicking on the Columns.png column button.

  8. Set a period. In the left column, you can set the period from which you want to view the data in your columns. There are two ways to set a period:

    Period.png > A relative period that shifts with each passing day. An example would be to set this to always show the coming 30 days.

    From-to.png > A static period. For example between the 1st of September and the 1st of October.

  9. Apply filters to your view. By default, filters are not applied to your view. This means that canceled projects are also taken into account. That's why filters can be useful to only see relevant statistics

    Click on the + next to filters in the left widget column to add a new filter.
    Example: To see your future revenue you would have to select confirmed projects only. To do this, select the 'is confirmed' option from the list of filters.

  10. Save your statistic view. Save your created view by using the shortcut ALT + S or by using the Save button in the top right corner. 

  11. Export your results. Click on the Columns.png column button to export the data in your screen. The data will be downloaded in a .csv file that can be opened and edited using Excel or Google Sheets.
