A report in Autodesk Fusion Operations is, essentially, a list of a certain type of element defined by the user within a given time period of your choice.


You can quickly generate and download the information you need about your machines' worktime. To access this data, follow the next steps:

Generating the Report

1. Go to Reports Menu

lick in ‘Reports’ on the left side of the screen, and then in ‘Machine Worktime’.

2. Filter and customize your data

Here you can customize your report by adding some filters. ‘Time period’ is the only mandatory one.

  • ‘Time period’: refers to the time interval of the machine worktime to be presented. You can either define it by clicking on the clock symbol, in a basic (selecting start and end date) or relative way (for example, ‘Today’, or ‘Last 7 days’). If you choose a relative period, you can also choose to schedule the report - learn more about it here. The time interval cannot exceed one month.

  • ‘Machine’: choose in case you want to analyze the worktime for a specific machine;

  • ‘Section’: select one if there’s a specific section you want to analyze.

You can also select some options on your report:

  • ‘Detailed by day’: this option allows you to detail the results daily;

  • ‘Hide weekends’: choose this option if you want to only get machine worktime data on weekdays - weekends will not be shown in the report.

Once you get the filters defined, click on ‘Generate Report’.

3. Generate the Report

Scroll down and click "Generate Report".

If the message shown below is presented, you can choose to generate a report in excel or in pdf, by pressing the desired option.

If the message shown below is presented, you must reduce timeframe or add additional filters to your report.

Moreover, if you already know you want to generate the report in PDF or Excel, you can also use directly the dropdown button, next to the "generate report" one, on the bottom of the page. After pressing it, you have the option to select the Excel (1) or PDF (2) option.

Once you've chosen the desired format for the report, a page will open, displaying a list of all reports generated in the past five days. This list includes the name of the generated file, the report's expiration date, and its status:

  • Waiting: This indicates that the report is in a queue for generation.

  • Generating: This means that the report is currently being generated by the system.

  • Download: This means the report is ready to be downloaded and saved to your computer. By clicking this link, you can download the selected report in the defined format.

You can check all the generated reports, within a five days range, by going to the Reports tab and pressing the option "View Recent Reports".

Interpret and download the results

After generating the report, you'll see the details about your machines' worktime in the defined time period. (1)

You’ll be shown 5 columns, where you can see:

  • 'Machine' code and name;

  • ‘presence time’, which is calculated for 24hours or according to the machine shift, if defined;

  • ‘work time’, that considers the time that the machine was actually performing work, i.e., with open production records, in the ‘time period’ defined;

  • ‘%’, representing the percentage of time spent working compared to the presence time (%=‘work time’/‘presence time’);

  • ‘sections’ assigned to the machine.

Like any Autodesk Fusion Operations report, you can either download it in Excel or PDF format by clicking on Excel Report or Export PDF.
