The data completeness function is a very powerful and very useful feature. In order for it to function correctly, some settings must be applied to each activity, such as who is responsible for the data entry, how many days late would be considered overdue, and when to escalate to management etc. These steps can be taken when the activity/meter is being created or afterwards.

Non Interval data is non half hourly interval data, this covers all non-half hourly activities.

Non Interval data covers all non-half hourly activities.

Step 1: To setup data completeness checking for an activity, click on the activity in the GHG Activity screen in the Data Management section. 


Step 2: On the Activity Data screen, click the Config tab at the top of the screen, next open up the Data Completeness section.Once the screen has appeared,  click on the > symbol beside Non Interval data - Data Completeness and then tick Enable Data Completeness Scanning (A)

Step 3: Next complete the settings for Data Completeness.

Detailed Descriptions below:  

B – How often do you expect the data owner to enter/upload data for the Activity?

Options include: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Every Two Weeks, Every Two Months, Quarterly and Four Weekly.

C - Number of days after the current period when the scan should run?

The number of days before scanning after a quarter ends or year ends to give users time to input the data. For example after a quarter ends give users a week to input data, so 7 days would be inputted.

D - There should be at least one data point in each.

Options include: Day, Week, Month, Year, Two Weeks, Two Months, Four Weeks.

I expect at least one data point in each day, week, month, etc.? This option means that you expect at least one item of data to be entered for the selected period. For example, you expect at least one record to be added to this activity each month e.g. gas, and electricity bills, water, waste etc.

E - There should be a point for each individual day: Options Yes/No

Do you expect data to be entered for this activity for each day? By setting this to yes, then the software knows that it is to expect at least one data point for every day in the period selected in item (C) above.

If item C is selected to Monthly, and if D is set to "Yes" then the software will check that every day in that month has some data associated with it. This is particularly useful for bill validation and metered data.  If set to "No" then the software will just check that each Month has at least one record of data in it.

F - The first scan will occur on: Choose Date.

The scan will check for data completeness in the data from this date to the present.

Scan historic data also? Select Yes/No

If you select yes a Date Period selector will appear and you must choose a historical start date to start scanning.  If yes input the date, the scan will check data completeness in historical data from this date to the present. This is a once off scan and the system will not continually scan historical data.
