Feature request: Ability to select report scope of a month

Veeam Logoby mkobes » Mon Nov 21, 2016 10:21 am

About 2 weeks ago i have had a support case about the abbility to generate reports with a different scope.
We would like to generate reports on the first of the month for a time period of the last month.
The report we are looking for, is for example: 1st of november generate a report of the VM Backup Status of last month (1st oktober till 31st of oktober).

For now it only posible to generate a report with the scope of a week or a number of weeks.

Supportcase: case 01968818

The support employe suggested to post on this forum for a feature request.


King regards

Hello and welcome to the community!

As I understood we are talking about VM Backup Status report.
Indeed, there is no option to choose exactly a month because of the report`s layout. We will take your request into account for future releases.

Could you explain your use case, please? Why you need exactly a month?

For now, as the support engineer suggested, you may schedule the report with interval = past 5 weeks.
Thanks!

Indeed i am talking about VM Backup Status report.

We are using this reporting for billing purposes, as we bill our customers over a monthly period.

Interesting.
Do you bill for successful backups, regardless their size?
Have you also considered url=https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/one/reporter/backup_billing.html?ver=95]Backup Billing[/url] report?
