WattPlan Reporting

WattPlan provides two different reporting options for detailed information on your WattPlan Instance(s): Google Looker Studio and PowerClerk Reporting.

Google Looker Studio

The Google Looker Studio (GLS) report features anonymized data from users of your WattPlan site. It includes aggregated session numbers, user drop-off rates, site visit durations, device usage statistics, clicked links, and more. Access to this report can be granted in two ways:

  • The WattPlan team can set up GLS to automatically send you a PDF version of the report each month. Please Note: This option is the simplest but does not provide access to interactive report controls (e.g., date range).
  • The WattPlan team can set you up to log in to GLS and access the report yourself as a Viewer. For this option, Google requires that you register your email with them first. You can follow the below instructions to use your existing account with Google:

    1.   Go to the Google Account Sign In page.
    2.   Click Create account.
    3.   Enter your name.
    4.   Click Use my current email address instead.
    5.   Enter your current email address.
    6.   Click Next.
    7.   Verify your email address with the code sent to your existing email.
    8.   Click verify.

Once setup, the WattPlan team will be able to add your email address so you can navigate to the Google Looker Studio report as a Viewer.

  3. Device category: Allows Viewers to filter through each device type and view relevant data per device.
  4. Devices used: A pie chart displaying the percentage of users per device.
  5. User engagement duration: Measured in hours:minutes:seconds. The amount of time users are actively engaging with the site by clicking, scrolling, or typing.

  11. Overall customer journey: A count of how many users made it onto the landing page, through the wizard and through each section of the results page.
  12. Customer link engagement: A count of users clicking on external links within WattPlan. Use this metric to gauge what links are most popular.

PowerClerk Reporting

The WattPlan Reports PowerClerk program provides access to customer-level data for each WattPlan session on your site.

This includes users’ inputs and selections, and details of the estimation results are shown. For each WattPlan user session and unique estimations, a new record is generated within the PowerClerk program. An initial report has been created within the program that has comprehensive coverage of all WattPlan reporting data for all user sessions on your site. You also have the option to create additional reports with a narrower focus by including only specific data fields, or by applying filters to report fields to refine the scope of interest e.g., estimations within a certain date range, estimations including a specific technology, etc. Running a PowerClerk report generates a .csv file of the results that can be downloaded for review and analysis. 

The WattPlan team will add you as user to your Utility’s Reports Program and you will receive an automated email from PowerClerk confirming your access and asking you to set your new account’s password.
