Availability of analytics data
Learn how Altocloud processes data for reports, how to view updated reports, and how to see more precise data in reports.
Processing data for reports
As a cloud-based product, Altocloud receives data from timezones around the globe. Each night, Altocloud processes this data in your organization's timezone for inclusion in reports. The reporting job processes all new data from 17:00 of the previous day to 17:00 of the current day. The reporting job begins at 22:45 local standard time and can take up to two hours to complete. Your fully processed, updated reports are available to you at 1:00 local standard time.
- Local standard time refers to the time in your organization's timezone. This may be different than your personal, local time.
- Altocloud uses Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) as the standard of precision for time-sensitive information. To stay consistent relative to UTC, Altocloud does not observe daylight savings time in determining when to begin processing reports.
- The count for the most recent date available (yesterday) will be updated to include a full 24-hours of data when the next reporting job runs. Until this time, the count for the most recent date may not include all 24 hours of data because the reporting processing window is 17:00-17:00.
Viewing updated reports
When you view a report, you select the date range for the data it shows. The date picker automatically restricts you from selecting an end date for which data processing is incomplete.

For each report, you select the granularity of data that you want to see. The more specific the granularity, the more detailed the report.
