Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Introduction
Priva Office Direct is a modular horticulture management software package. Priva Office consists of a
basic system with one or more add-on modules. These modules each offer specific functionality. Depending
on user requirements, a customised management system can be created accordingly. Together, Priva
Office Direct and the Priva Intégro process computer forms a formidable combination for accurate
greenhouse climate control. Priva Office Direct also handles energy and water management issues. Priva
Office Direct also acts as a process management system for recording a variety of relevant process and
operational data. Using Priva Office, you can manage data in a structured manner and use the available
information to assist with short and long-term operational decision-making.
Priva Office consists of the Priva Office basic system as well as Supervision, Save and restore settings,
Enervision, Meteovision, Remote Terminal, Report Generator, Continuous export of 5 minutes values
and Alarm Server Connection modules.
The Supervision module has a simple, modern graphic user interface. The Supervision module is also
used to save information from Priva Intégro process control to the Priva Office database.
You can save, restore and manage settings using the Save and restore settings module.
The Enervision module optimises power management using the weather forecasts collected by the
Meteovision module.
The Remote Terminal module allows the Intégro process computer(s) to be operated remotely.
The Report Generator module presents any historical data saved in a clearly structured manner. The
Continuous export of 5 minutes values module provides useful additional functionality for the Report
Generator module. This module allows current data to be exported automatically as a CSV file (comma
separated values) at any time of the day.
The Alarm Server Connection module establishes a digital connection between Priva Office and the
Adesys ARA Alarm Server. The ARA Alarm Server provides a wide range of alarm management features
such as generating troubleshooting schedules and issuing SMS or voice message alerts.
The options provided by all the Priva Office modules are detailed in separate chapters for each module.

New Priva Office Direct Functions
Priva Office Direct is the new operating program for your Priva Intégro process computer. This successor
to Priva Office 5 has a clear, new layout and provides improved user-friendliness thanks to its
graphics-based operating screens. It is possible to configure the program completely to your personal
preference and company situation. Priva Office Direct also provides more options for monitoring and
modifying processes.
Greater Clarity and User-Friendliness
Priva Office Direct's look and feel has been completely revised and provides access to all of Intégro's
solutions for optimizing growth, climate, water and energy strategies. Icons ensure easy navigation to
desired modules such as climate or water. You can easily identify which module you are in by the icon
and the corresponding colour scheme.

Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Setting Greenhouse Temperatures
Graphically
Priva Office Direct's new graph-based configuration function allows you to adjust heating and ventilation
temperature, and heating net and air vent settings graphically. By clicking and dragging points on a graph,
any desired temperature curve can be programmed. Maximum influence adjustments are also displayed
for the desired curve. While adjusting these settings, corresponding temperature sums are displayed for
the temperature curve over a 24-hour period and for daytime and night time periods. The configured
curve can be applied to all the heating and ventilation controls present. Graph-based configuration is
possible using graphs in combination with Intégro version 727.
Clearer Visible Alarm Signals
In the top left-hand corner of the Priva Office screen is a new alarm indicator that is either green or red
depending on the situation. If a new alarm has been received, then a pop-up window appears displaying
a message. This window appears on top of all other active windows and lists all active alarms. If you do
not have time to deal with the alarm at that moment, then the pop-up window can be temporarily
suppressed. The alarm indicator and pop-up window ensure that it is impossible to overlook any alarms.

Personal Experiences Relating to Alarm
Signals
Using Priva Office Direct, it is possible to add personal notes about your experiences and solutions applied
in response to specific alarms. If you ever receive a similar alarm signal in the future, then the note
automatically appears onscreen alongside the alarm providing information that can be used to resolve
the malfunction.

Schematic Display of All Operations
It is possible to depict your company's processes schematically using Priva Office Direct. These process
dashboards help you gain better insight and improve your company's horticultural processes. They are
fully customizable and can be created to meet your personal requirements.
If you would like more information about process dashboards for your company's specific needs, then
contact Priva or your personal dealer.
Comprehensive Alarm Management
An ARA Alarm Server Connection has been developed in partnership with Adesys to provide a solution
to widespread demand for enhanced alarm management. An intelligent interface forwards all current
alarm information to the Adesys ARA Alarm Server, which provides a comprehensive range of options
for managing alarms and associated processes. Examples include generating troubleshooting schedules
and issuing alerts via SMS.
If you would like more information about a company alarm server, then please contact your personal
dealer.

Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Distribution
Priva Office Direct software is available on CD-ROM. Each CD-ROM is installed using an installation
key. Priva defines this installation key based on the information listed below.
•
•
•
•
•
Client name and city.
Priva Office modules selected.
Maximum number of Intégro process computers to be operated.
Maximum number of users.
Maximum number of clients that can be used simultaneously.
When a new module is purchased for Priva Office Direct, Priva will issue a new CD-ROM with a new
installation key. If you purchase the Remote Terminal module, you will also be issued with a licence code
for the PDA with Windows mobile user interface. The issue of a new release of Priva Office does not
immediately call for a new installation key. You can simply install the new version using the previously
supplied key. Only when Priva Office is updated from, for example, Version 5 to Priva Office Direct
Version 1 or when Priva Office is expanded with a commercial option (e.g. the Report Generator module),
a new key will be needed to install Priva Office.
Installation
Server and Client
Your dealer will install Priva Office on one central powerful PC, the server. The Priva Office database
will also be on this server. If you wish to operate the system at several locations, more PCs are connected
to the server in a network by your dealer. Such an additional PC is referred to as a client.
The Intégro process computer can be operated through each client and all settings and measurements
can be viewed from that client. The entire Priva Office system (including its maintenance) is installed
exclusively on the server. Only a very limited installation is carried out on the clients for communication
with the server. Full operation, however, is available on the client. If the Priva Office server is updated,
the software on the connected Priva Office clients is automatically updated as soon as the client
communicates with the server. The update will not be automatic after the Priva Office server has been
updated with regard to Priva Office clients that are linked to the Priva Office server through a VPN link.
Your dealer must update these clients manually.
The maximum number of clients that can be used simultaneously is determined commercially. You must
purchase a licence for each client that you wish to use simultaneously.
You can dial up, if required, through a client available in the network to operate the process
computer(s) through the Remote Terminal module.

17
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Basic System
The Priva Office basic system offers a large number of functions. The most important are collecting data
and managing information.
Database and Data Storage
Priva Office automatically saves all data collected by the various modules to a central database. Manual
input of data is also possible. You can display the information in a structured manner and in a way that
suits you through the basic functions.
Graph Module
The data saved in the Priva Office database can be displayed as line graphs onscreen.
In combination with the Supervision module, both configuration and measured graphs can be shown
together onscreen using the graph module. You can also compose graph sets with a maximum of ten
graph lines per set. The colour and the desired graduation level can be set for each graph line. In theory,
the number of graph sets is unlimited.
The graph data can be browsed through in predefined steps using the 'forward' and 'back' buttons.
The zoom function makes it possible to view the graphs in detail. Part of a graph can be selected with
the mouse and shown in detail.
The graphs being displayed in the active graph set are shown in the legend. The accompanying graduation
level is displayed by activating a graph in the legend. You can, moreover, easily hide or display graph
lines in the legend by selecting or deselecting graphs. The colour can be adjusted for each graph line. The
legend provides additional information such as the minimum, maximum and average value of the graph
line being displayed.
Graphs can be displayed with settings sections in the same screen by using the Editor.
18
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
A CSV file can be manually generated with regard to the graphs that contain all the values of all
measurement values from the graph. A CSV file can easily be imported into Excel or other software
packages.
Graphs can, of course, also be printed. For more information, please refer to the “Print Data” section.
Automatic Actions
Automatic actions are used to arrange for procedures to be carried out on a certain date or according to
a fixed schedule. Such processes, for example, include printing certain summaries or graphs, retrieving
the local weather forecast, creating a backup of the entire Priva Office database or e-mailing reports from
the Report Generator to the cultivation information officer.
You can choose the process and the date, time and interval when it is carried out. You can retrieve which
automatic processes are scheduled in an overview. Whether a user can view or change these automatic
processes can be defined for each user role. If you also use the Report Generator module, you can export
and (if required) automatically mail CSV files with 5-minute values through an automatic process.
Printing Data
The available settings and measuring categories can be immediately printed using the printer that is
connected to the Intégro computer or using a printer that is connected to one of the PCs within the
network. The currently displayed screen can be printed by clicking the Print button. The HTML sections
and graphs of Priva Office can only be printed on the PC printer. Messages from the Intégro process
computer can only be printed on the Intégro printer.
19
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Users and User Roles
Only the Priva Office system administrator can create different users (only the system administrator has
all rights and can determine the rights of the other users). Each user is given his/her own user name and
password with the linked rights. The user logs on to the server from any client using these details. The
user ‘system administrator’ is available in Priva Office as standard. The number of user roles is determined
commercially. A licence is required for each user role.
Rights are assigned in the user roles section. The number of user roles is in principle infinite. It is easy
to build up a user role from the menu taskbar. Read-only or access and editing rights can be set for each
folder or group. Each user role has a unique menu taskbar. Each user is linked to a user role. When the
user logs on, he/she only sees the components that have been compiled for him/her. A user can also be
automatically logged out at a time set in advance. If the user interface is not used for a number of minutes
as set in advance, it reverts to a standard component such as M100. If no users are created or all users
have been assigned all rights, it is not necessary to log on to the system.
20
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Help
A full help function supports the user with clear explanations about the use of the software. The help
window can remain open while using the controls.
21
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Supervision Module
Installation
The server on which the Supervision module is installed is linked through an Ethernet cable with the
Intégro process computer. An HTML variant is then created on all configuration and measurement
groups on the Intégro computer (based on the software configuration on the Intégro computer). The
system will display the HTML configuration and measurement groups in the same menu structure as on
the Intégro computer.
If the Supervision module is installed on a PC on which an existing graphic interface is already active,
the graph sets that have already been defined and the selected graph data can be converted during the
conversion to Supervision.
The standard installation of Supervision comprises:
•
•
•
•
•
•
A simple menu structure in which all of the configuration and measurement groups can be retrieved.
User management in which you can assign a menu layout, including rights, to each user of the system.
Copy function for individual settings and/or all settings of a configuration group.
A Graphs module for displaying all registered data in graph form.
An HTML editor that can be used to adjust all HTML groups or create new HTML groups.
Visualisation of the company, the compartments, the boiler house and the water reservoir.
Operation
Supervision is the advanced graphic user interface for the Intégro process computer. All configuration
and measurement categories can easily be retrieved using drop-down menus. The menu layout and the
names of the groups can be tailored entirely to the user's requirements. Priva Office Direct's modern
design ensures that the presentation of all data is extremely well-organised.
Supervision is based on the worldwide used Internet technology and, therefore, it is linked to all normal
information and communication technologies. This technology ensures that you can quickly anticipate
on new developments. It also offers the flexibility to independently compile a specific and optimum
interface program.
It is possible to configure heating and ventilation strategies graphically within the Supervision module.
This option provides a maximum overview of the defined strategies thus reducing the chance of any
configuration errors. The strategies configured are automatically converted to corresponding settings in
the numerical interface. Graphic displays also present the maximum adjustments for target values as a
result of the various influences, as well as the average values over a 24-hour period, during the day and
overnight. Configured strategies can be copied to all known controls. Graph-based configuration is
possible using graphs in combination with Intégro version 727.
22
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Copy
You can easily copy settings with the Supervision module. Both individual settings and the settings of an
entire configuration group can be copied directly from the active configuration group. When you copy
an entire configuration group, you can specify per setting whether you wish to copy it or not. You can
also set whether you wish to copy the settings to a specific compartment or various compartments
simultaneously. It is also possible to copy settings to another process computer. This is especially useful
for horticultural companies located at more than one site.
Editor
The HTML editor, which is supplied as standard, can be used to modify the Priva Office screens according
to the your own requirements. That way, unused settings or controls can be removed. The editor can
also be used to create new groups or to combine information from groups.
23
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Graphic visualisation
You can access configuration and measurement groups through the garden's floor plan with the
Supervision module. A graphic depiction of the garden is created during the installation of Supervision.
The depiction is tailored to the company's individual situation. The graphic visualisation of the
compartments, the water reservoir and the boiler house can be retrieved from the floor plan. These
visualisations feature graphic symbols (icons) of the controls in the compartments, the water controls
and the heat controls. Also, the most important information from the Intégro computer is displayed
directly in this visualisation.
Data storage
With regard to all Intégro process computers that are linked to Priva Office through the Supervision
module, Priva Office automatically saves the information in the Priva Office database. You can specify
with regard to each measurement and calculation on the screen whether the history of this value should
be kept up-to-date in the database. The minute data for all stored information is saved in the database
at least once every 24 hours. This ensures you can analyse in detail the conditions of the past 24 hours.
Priva Office will save this data as 5-minute values during the next 24-hour transition. The Priva Office
data logger is thus able to register historical records for a maximum of 2000 values of all parameters
divided over one or more Intégro process computers.
24
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Save and restore settings Module
Configuring the climate computer software is becoming ever more complex. Typical situations and the
related settings, however, occur more often during the operational cycle of the process computer (for
example, the crop phase, season, chalking). Being able to save or restore these settings offers you more
reliability and savings with regard to labour costs. Priva Office Direct has new functions for this in the
form of the Save and restore settings module. Save and restore settings is an expansion module for the
Supervision module.
Examples of the options offered by Save and restore settings
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
You can save configuration sets using a meaningful name in which you can include crop, the crop
phase, the season and other significant information. This ensures that later it is very easy to again
find these settings and to restore them.
You can, for example, save the optimal settings of the Ventilation for Compartment 2 for April for
the cultivation of Alstroemeria. You can reset this optimal configuration (for the same cultivation)
during the following year.
You can save the settings from all compartments and use them as a backup for operational settings.
You can save and restore a configuration set to the same location.
You can make a selection based on defined groups of settings.
There is an automatic correction for astronomical times.
The configuration sets are version independent (conversion free).
A maximum of 40 characters are available for the name of a configuration set and 400 characters
are available for the description of a configuration set.
Save and restore settings can only be used in combination with Intégro version 726.04 or higher.

Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Enervision Module
The Enervision module can be supplied as an add-on to the Supervision module. The Meteovision module
is required to use the Enervision function.
The Enervision module calculates the course of the heat demand for the next 48 hours on the basis of
the set climate strategies of the connected Intégro computer and the weather forecast retrieved via
Meteovision from the Weathernews Benelux BV met office. Enervision takes the expected heat demand
as a basis for calculating the use of the energy curtains, the temperature integration program and the
required heat reserve in the buffer tank. Meteovision will automatically retrieve online weather forecast
data for the next 48 hours four times per day. The system will save the data retrieved to the Priva Office
database. If Enervision needs to be run on several Intégro process computers, then you must specify this
prior to the Priva Office installation. See the section Configuration (page 35).
Communication with the Intégro Process Computer
The Intégro process computer communicates the strategy for the desired heating temperature and also
the conditions that affect it to the Enervision module. The curtain and lighting strategies are also
communicated. The maximum gas consumption defined (and contractually agreed) in the Intégro
computer is also communicated as well as the maximum amount of energy that is available.
Temperature integration
The Enervision module can be used to configure the use of temperature integration on the basis of all
the available information. The Enervision module defines the optimum target value for the heating
temperature within the control space that you set for temperature integration on the Intégro computer.
At times when there is not enough energy to meet the heat demand (e.g. owing to the defined maximum
consumption), the Enervision module will ensure that the desired heating line is lowered within the
permitted temperature integration parameter. If there is a surplus of energy at a later date (e.g. owing to
the use of free solar power), the Enervision module will raise the desired heating line.
26
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
The temperature integration program in the Intégro computer registers the temperature 'deficit' or
'surplus' over a set number of days on the basis of a temperature sum (in degree-hours). If the demand
for energy exceeds the available maximum and it is not possible to achieve the (average) desired heating
line within the set control parameters, there will be a temperature deficient in degrees/hours. The system
will pass on the temperature deficit to the following day. You can limit the maximum temperature sum.
That makes it possible to achieve a lower heating temperature within the maximum available gas
consumption during a cold period. The system automatically compensates this lower temperature at a
later date by achieving a higher heating temperature in a period when the heat demand is lower than the
maximum available gas consumption.
The calculated heating line can be generated through the graphs module of Priva Office Direct. You will
then see exactly what will happen. If you, next, adjust the settings, the system will immediately calculate
the effect.
Energy curtain
The Enervision module can be used to configure the use of the energy curtain on the basis of the available
information. The closing time is set within the defined period times on the Intégro computer and the
opening and closing limits for the energy curtain. At times when there is (temporarily) not enough energy
to meet the heat demand (e.g. owing to the defined maximum gas consumption), the Enervision module
will ensure that the energy curtains are closed early. This saves energy and prevents the heat demand
from exceeding the maximum available gas consumption.
Buffer reserve
Once the temperature integration and the energy curtains have been defined, the Enervision module
calculates the remaining heat demand for the next 24 hours. Enervision will pass on this expected heat
demand to the Intégro computer. That enables the Intégro system to calculate the necessary heat reserve
in the heating buffer tank. At times when there is 'surplus' energy and when increased demand is
anticipated later in the day on the basis of the expected heat demand, the system will store heat in advance
in the heating buffer tank. When the peak in the heat demand actually occurs, sufficient heat will have
been reserved in the buffer to meet that demand. The heat sources jointly ensure that the heat buffer is
filled in good time.

Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Meteovision Module
You can automatically retrieve weather forecast elements from the Weathernews Benelux BV met office
using the Meteovision module. You will need a subscription to the services offered by Weathernews
Benelux BV, as well as the Meteovision module to ensure you can retrieve weather forecast elements.
Priva will automatically subscribe to the service for a year on your behalf after the Meteovision module
has been supplied. The subscription will be automatically extended for another year unless you cancel.
You can decide for yourself from which weather station you wish to retrieve the weather forecasts. You
can make a selection from all weather stations that are supported by Meteovision. It is laid down in the
subscription that the local weather forecast, containing the following elements, is retrieved 4 times a day:

The automatic processes of Priva Office Direct automatically connects to Weathernews Benelux BV
several times per day through the Internet. You can define the retrieval frequency (maximum 24 times
a day and minimum once a day). Meteovision uses the broadband Internet connection connected to the
network. The forecast elements listed above are retrieved for the next 48 hours by Meteovision. The
system will subsequently save the data in the Priva Office database. The Graph module of Priva Office
will present the weather forecast in graph form. As well as the weather forecast, the actual weather is also
retrieved from the selected weather station by Meteovision.
The weather forecast can in principle be used for all Priva Office modules. In combination with the
Enervision module (as an extension of Supervision), the weather forecast can be used to determine the
expected heat demand.
Additional system requirements apply to the use of the Meteovision module. For more information
consult the section System Requirements (page 10).
Meteovision supports the following regions.
The Netherlands, Belgium, France, UK, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany, New Zealand,
Switzerland, Canada and USA*.

Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Remote Terminal Module
The Remote Terminal module makes it possible to operate the Intégro process computer(s) remotely.
You can login remotely to one of the Priva Office clients or the server using a Pocket PC, Smartphone,
laptop or desktop PC. This only takes over control of the Intégro computer and not the entire Priva
Office PC. An alphanumerical interface is used to operate the Intégro menu. The Remote Terminal
software is distributed on the Priva Office CD-ROM. Priva will also supply a licence code for the PDA
with Windows mobile interface. You can also order a PDA with Windows mobile directly when ordering
the Remote Terminal software.
Priva Office PC
The Remote Terminal software must be installed on one of the clients. When there are no clients available,
install it on the server. The server, however, must have been equipped with a modem for the
communication with the Pocket PC.
PDA with Windows mobile
Install the required communication software on the PDA with Windows mobile. You can do this by
connecting the PDA to one of the clients of the server. The PDA must be connected to a mobile telephone
that takes over the function of the modem for the communication with the Priva Office PC. The connection
can be created through the infrared port, by using Bluetooth or through a cable (depending on the make
and type of mobile telephone). You can obtain information about these cable options from your telecom
dealer. The Pocket PC software is supplied with a licence for the communication software. The PDA
software and the communication software are supplied in English.
29
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Other Pocket PCs
If you wish to use another Pocket PC or a smartphone, for example, a PALM or a Nokia Communicator,
you must purchase the client software through the manufacturer of this Pocket PC or you must download
it through the Internet. This refers to the communication software through which the Pocket PC
communicates with other computers through Telnet. You can also remotely install this software on a
laptop PC or desktop PC and use it for the remote control of the Intégro computer. The appropriate
software must also be installed on the other Pocket PCs and they must be equipped with a modem. If a
Smartphone is used, the PDA and telephone functionality will be integrated in a single device.
Priva Office Direct uses communication software with a Telnet licence for the Remote Terminal
module. This software only operates under Windows Mobile 6 Professional or Windows Mobile
6 Classic.
Additional system requirements apply to the use of the Remote Terminal module. For more information
consult the section System Requirements (page 10).
Support
Support is limited to external access and the Telnet software for operating the Intégro computer and the
backup and restore function of the PDA with Windows mobile. Priva will charge for other support. The
support guarantee is valid for one year. A PDA with Windows mobile is not covered by the Intégro
support and system contract.
Priva does not supply peripherals such as modem cards, cables, etc. for the PDA with Windows mobile.

Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Alarm Server Connection Module
Using the Alarm Server Connection module, you can connect your Priva processing systems to Adesys'
ARA Alarm Server. An intelligent interface forwards all active alarms to the alarm server. The Adesys
ARA Alarm Server offers a wide range of alarm management options such as:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Sending alerts using modern communication technology such as SMS, voice messaging and e-mail.
Complete overview of all connected systems:
- Active alarms with corresponding status, location, description and assigned service staff member.
- Alarm history logbook with additional reporting and filtering options.
Service schedules as troubleshooting planning tool. Services can be planned within user-defined
schedules for day/night/workday/weekend/etc.
Eight alarm urgency levels can be configured. For each alarm level, it is possible to configure the
alarm response, e.g. less urgent errors can be suppressed overnight.
Recording operating procedures in response to an alarm:
- If an alarm signal is received at the alarm server, then the designated person is informed
automatically. This is dependent on service schedules and the alarm's urgency and location.
- The person alerted has to accept the call within a pre-defined time limit, otherwise the next person
on the service schedule will be alerted.
Central alarm signal management from various locations and systems.
Thanks to the Priva Office interface, alarms contain a complete error description. It is also possible to
assign a response delay to groups of alarms such that short-lasting alarms are not forwarded. A major
benefit of the Priva Office connection is reuse of existing infrastructure rather than having to install an
additional alarm network.
The Alarm Server Connection is an option that needs to be activated for each Priva Office server. The
connection is compatible with Intégro versions 721 and higher.

Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Report Generator Module
You can easily present historical data in a well-organised manner with the Report Generator module.
The module also replaces many manual registrations by an automated solution. The reports generated
by the Report Generator module are immediately suitable to be used in study groups for comparison
purposes. The data also provides a great deal of information about the industrial climate, energy and
water processes.
The Report Generator module can generate the following reports:
General
•
This report is intended for making comparisons on the basis of the principal aspects of a pre-selected
compartment, such as outdoor conditions, climate, energy and water.
Energy
•
This report presents total gas consumption, gas consumption per compartment (total and per m2)
and energy information for each source present. This includes the hourly registration of the gas
consumption and the production, import and export of electricity.
Water
•
The report presents information about the water dose, such as water consumption per water system,
water consumption per valve group, number of starts in each start program, consumption per dosing
channel and drainage measurements.
Valves
•
This report generates the historical data per valve such as water consumption, water consumption
per m2 and EC/pH per valve.
Climate
•
This report contains detailed information about the climate conditions in a compartment predefined
by the user.
Lighting
•
This report presents information about the activation duration of each lighting string.
Operation
•
This report contains detailed information about all compartments present at the company such as
climate and gas consumption data. The summary is specifically intended to make comparisons
between compartments.
32
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
You can automatically print the reports (through an automatic process) at a predefined time and with
the required frequency. You can, thus, for example, automatically have your reports printed every Saturday
morning at 9 a.m.
In addition to printing, you can automatically send reports in the form of a PDF or CSV file to one or
more e-mail addresses that you select. You can, thus, for example, automatically have your reports sent
by e-mail every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. CSV files are easily imported into Excel. You can also send
files (PDF or CSV) manually by e-mail. You will require Adobe Acrobat Reader to be able to read PDF
files (which can be downloaded for free). The most recent version of Acrobat Reader is supplied with
Priva Office Direct. You can, therefore, install the software on all PCs. You can configure the mail server
to be used yourself.
You can simple send day/night information, for example, to LetsGrow.com, by using the option of
automatic CSV files. The registration that up to now was done manually can now simple be automated
by installing the Report Generator module on the Priva Office server.
Continuous export of 5 minute values
You can easily export files with 5-minute values and (if required) they may also be mailed to third parties
by using the Report Generator module. These files contain the 5-minute values up to the end of the
previous period. If the ‘Continuous export of 5 minute values’ option is also available, then you can
export (and e-mail) files with 5-minute values that will contain the values up to the time of export. You
can choose which data you wish to export and send.
Reports and files with 5-minute values only work in combination with a broadband Internet
connection or an Exchange server for e-mailing in the company’s network. A dial-up connection
(analogue or ISDN) will not automatically start and stop. You can, however, mail using a dial-up
connection if you first bring about a connection manually and subsequently give the mail
instruction.
Layout and content of the reports
You cannot change the information and layout of reports. The information in the rapport is determined
based on the Intégro configuration.
33
Priva Office Direct for Intégro - April 2009
Reporting periods
Every report can be retrieved as a:
•
•
•
•
A weekly report (with the days of the week per column and a total weekly column).
A period report (with the four weeks of the period per column and a total period column).
Quarterly report (with the three months of the quarter per column and a total quarterly column).
Annual report (with the four quarters of the year per column and a total annual column).
You can decide which week, period, quarter and year you want to retrieve (provided, of course, that data
is available). The data presented in reports can be retrieved from the date on which the Report Generator
was installed. You cannot display any further historical data from before this date.
