CoughDrop optionally tracks all button presses when usera area in Speak Mode. This data is backed up to the cloud so that the communicator and any linked supervisors can review the logs remotely from their own devices. This makes it possible for support staff to see progress without taking the communicator's device away. CoughDrop also generates a number of reports based on usage data to make it easier to process, including optionally showing location-based reports.
CoughDrop Reporting Video Tutorial
To access the reports for a user, visit their profile page. You can access your own profile page by hitting the profile icon in the top right corner and selecting "My Account".
On a user's profile page, select the "Report" section to view the user's reports. Communicators can see their own reports, and all supervisors can see reports for users that they supervise. Remember, reports will only appear if the user has enabled reporting, and performs a sync while connected to the Internet at least once in a while (once a week is recommended).
CoughDrop can optionally track usage by geolocation using the GPS available on the communicator's devices. This is an additional login level that must be turned on in addition to standard logging. When it is turned on, you can see how many sessions were recorded for a given location, and what the time frame was for the sessions. CoughDrop can also filter all other reports based on their location in addition to date range, to be able to better compare usage across different locations like home vs. school. To filter by geolocation, hit "filter by this location" on the desired marker.
The reporting page will then show reports based on the date range specified and the location selected. To remove the location filter, simply hit the "x" next to "geo location" in the reports header.
