    Title:
    How do I access a coordination report?
    Description:

    Overview

    A coordination report is a document that summarizes a list of the channels for which new frequencies were most recently calculated. This report might be useful to distribute to A2s tuning gear to specific frequencies, clients to portray a full listing of devices and their assigned frequencies, or even yourself to keep a record of a particular coordination.

    Access

    To access a coordination report, you must have devices in your inventory and perform Frequency Coordination.

    First, navigate to the Frequency Coordination tab. Select "Manage Channels..." from the right sidebar to access the Channel Summary dialog.

    Ensure that all the channels you want to calculate new frequencies for (and to be included in your coordination report) are checked. Note that any checked backup frequencies will also be included as a part of the coordination report.

    Select "OK" to close the dialog.

    Ensure that all other parameters for Frequency Coordination are configured. Consult the Frequency Coordination tutorial video for more details on each of the controllable parameters that impact Frequency Coordination.

    To begin Frequency Coordination, select "Calculate New Frequencies".

    The RF Coordination Results dialog will be displayed, and show progress as the channels that requested frequencies are calculated for.

    Once complete, the RF Coordination Results dialog will display a summary of all frequencies found. It is from this dialog that you must access the coordination report.

    Select the "Export" button, and from the drop-down menu, select "Coordination Report...".

    A Coordination Report configurator will pop up, allowing you to show or hide certain sections of the report. Once the report is configured to your liking, select "Generate Report.

    The Coordination Report will be displayed for your review.

    From this dialog, you can browse all elements of the report you elected to view, as well as print the report, or save it to a variety of formats. The Coordination Report can be saved as:

    • PDF
    • Text file (.txt)
    • Comma separated values (.csv)

    Once saved, you can reprint, distribute, or archive the coordination report.

    Deployment

    NOTE: Pressing "Calculate New Frequencies" and waiting for the calculation to complete does not deploy found frequencies to online Shure devices. In order to deploy the coordinated solution, you must press "Deploy to Inventory" from the RF Coordination Results dialog. A subsequent dialog will summarize the success of the deployment.

      Hi Sam,

      Just a follow up to our discussion from earlier today...For WWB 6 to be an effective tool for me in the filed, I need to be able to generate and print a real time report that shows all frequencies in play at a given moment. While I understand that you can generate a report right after you complete a calculation, this is not useful when you are just adding additional devices to your inventory and calculating frequencies for these new devices (at which point the list just shows any added frequencies, not all of the frequencies in play). Also, as you can do in the IAS program (Complete, Normal Etc), being able print/save a report that is sorted by frequency, function etc, is a very useful tool when handling large numbers of frequencies in a live environment.

      Hey Bill,
      reading your post, I came up with an idea
      I think this kinda ties in with the requests in another thread about printing the frequency list.
      maybe rather than being able to just print the frequency list, what is really needed is the ability to produce a "usage report" which would be generated in the same way as a coordination report, allowing you to select show info, frequency lists, select/deselect different zones/unit categories, with the ability to sort by the options that mentioned or sort by Tags,zone,type etc.

      I guess to integrate with spectrum manager you would have to be able to either take a 'freezefeame' of the backups or just prevent backups being selected if you are online to the spectrum manager.

      I can almost hear the groan from the programmers

      Hi Sam,

      This latest WWB6 beta (6.3.1.1) is really good stuff.

      I must second Bill's request for full reports to be available at any time. After performing a coordination to reassign a single frequency, only that frequency is shown on the new report. Unless I'm not seeing the way to get a complete report, that is...

      Best wishes,
      Jason Glass

      Having an on demand report would be a great option. times when i need to add a mic or account for some change i dont want to reconfigure / recalculate all channels
