Status & Success Rate > Status > Week At A Glance report
This report summarizes activity for a week by symbolically displaying the result of each job for each client under the day of the week. The symbols are the blue (Success) and yellow (Partial Success) men and failures that are denoted by a red "X". This report provides quick and comprehensive verification that all is well in the data protection solution using symbols. A drill-down capability to the job level details (i.e Job ID, Start/End Time, Size etc.) is provided. You can drill down to any server on any day and get the job level detail.
It can be reported on against any view or level within a view along with any of the key backup infrastructure components (backup server, media server) and attributes (policy, policy type, schedule, OS, product, transport type). Filtering is available on all components and attributes. The report provides a visualization of job status for the most current data and how that compares to the previous six days.
This report can be used for automated report generation and email features where different report filters can be used to show specific systems and then that data emailed to the relevant parties once a week. Symantec recommends that you use filters in large environments. This is because the report shows every master server and client by default.
Week at a Glance Report's performance declines as the data to be displayed in the report increases. For example, running a two-month report is slower than running a two-week report.
The Week at a Glance report displays icons when it is exported or emailed in an HTML format. Earlier in OpsCenter 7.0.x, the Week at a Glance report could not display icons when exported or emailed in an HTML format. This issue has been fixed in OpsCenter 7.1 and later versions.

This report shows that there were a number of failures and also quickly shows that most of the backups completed successfully. Using this report you can see if backups ran each day of the week and the status of that backup. This report can be scheduled to be emailed or exported weekly which saves a great deal of time.
