Why are the usage metrics in Library Portal not matching what I have in the previous monthly report spreadsheets?
Please note that there might be a slight difference in the usage metrics in this Library Portal and the monthly reports that were sent you earlier. This is due to the fact that the reports here are excluding any patron access to the Lumos StepUp program before they became members of the library. Ex. If a patron had accessed the StepUp program in Nov 2017 on his own and in Jan 2018 used the subscription via their library card, the reports in this Library Portal does not count the patron access in Nov 2017. However, in the monthly reports we used to send in the past, we used to count both Nov 2017 and Jan 2018 usage.
