The truncation feature is used to shorten time either at the beginning or the end.

It is optional and would be used in cases where someone would have experienced:

  • Cellular connectivity issues;

  • Problems connecting to the app;

  • Had forgotten to start a test.

Accessing the Truncate feature:

1- Click on Upgrade Dataset, then Finalize Test

2- Click on: Generate Report

3- Under REPORT GENERATION RANGE you will locate the truncate option. Start and End.

In this example the unit captured roughly 243 hours of data, but we only need the last 48 hours. We will then truncate hours from the START:

  • The start date and time: 9/23/2023 4:46:39pm

  • The end date and time: 10/3/2023 8:46:39pm

We want the last 48 hours, so we would truncate 196 hours from the START to give us a start date and time of 10/1/2023 8:46:39

📌When you enter the amount of hours to remove in the TRUNCATE HRS FROM THE START, the start date will update.

Click Continue and keep going as normal throughout the report generating process. The updated dates will appear in the TEST INFORMATION, HOURLY MEASUREMENT DATA and GRAPHS sections.
