Viewing a Housing Utilization Report

Previous Topic  Next Topic 

The Housing Utilization Report is a built-in report used to measure program capacity and utilization over a period of time.  To view this report from within the Reports module, complete the following steps:

    1. From the navigation bar, click Reports (or the Reports icon).  The Reports index is displayed.

    1. Click the Program drop-down arrow in the upper-right corner of the page and select the individual residential program for which the report is to be run, or select a group of programs using one of the available "All" or "Custom Grouping" selections.

  NOTE: This report is only available for residential programs.  If a non-residential program is selected an error is displayed.

    1. If you previously bookmarked the Housing Utilization Report it is displayed on the reports index by default; otherwise, from the left-hand menu bar, click All under "Show Reports."
    2. Use the navigation features in the bottom-right corner to locate the Housing Utilization Report in the index, or enter "residential census" in the Search field in the upper-right corner.
    3. Click Housing Utilization Report from the reports index.  The Housing Utilization Report settings page is displayed.

    1. The housing utilization report measures program capacity and utilization over a  period of time as specified in the From and To date range fields on this page.  Make changes to the default date range as needed.  To view the report for a single day, enter the date in both date range fields.
    2. Click CONTINUE.  The read-only report is displayed on the Housing Utilization Report page.   When viewing the contents of this report, keep in mind the following:

  The report is designed to allow you to track utilization rates on both a "bed" level, and a "unit" level.  This can be especially helpful for programs that have family units with multiple beds per unit.

  For programs that add or remove beds/units during the year, the Capacity and Utilization Rate calculations take those changes into consideration.

  The utilization rates on the report are calculated in a consistent manner regardless of how the report is run.  It always looks at the "nights" occupied and does not count the last night of the date range or a client's discharge date.

  Beds that have an "Availability" set to "Overflow" will not be included in the calculations for Capacity, but clients residing in overflow beds will be counted in the calculations related to occupancy.

Click any of the underlined column names in the report contents table to sort by the corresponding variable.  To quickly return to the report settings page after the report has been sorted multiple times, click the underlined report name at the top of the page.

The process of viewing a housing utilization report is now complete.
