BATS account managers and supervisors may now contact the USBDC to coordinate the automated delivery of BATS-entry reports. These reports can be set up in any manner, but as an example, an account manager can arrange with the USBDC to have a daily automated report delivered by email each day, listing every BATS incident entered by the squad/unit/task force or custom group within the past 24 hours. This can be set up for incidents, activities or both, and can be delivered on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
These automated reports make for an ideal management tool, saving supervisors from having to sign into BATS to run an administrative report for the same information. They can also be used to maintain and promote situational awareness of reported incidents in your area of responsibility.
