    How do I view, upload, and delete usage reports in Intota?

    The COUNTER Reports page allows you to view, upload, and delete usage reports.  The page also provides the ability to view your aggregated usage data that you have uploaded over time. 

    Access the page by clicking on Counter Reports in the Reports menu bar.

    This summary page is accessed by clicking the Summary View button on the top right of the COUNTER Reports page (see above section).

    The summary page provides a quick, overall view of your Counter reports uploaded to Intota.  The default view is sorted by provider, and the reports displayed are those which have been uploaded over the past year by your library or by ProQuest's Data Retrieval Service (DRS).  Use the filters at the top of the page to view a different range of dates, or to see a filtered view by provider.
