The Passing Times Traffic report shows when movement is happening among events within a single building.
Use this report to view when events collectively begin and end. The report shows all the unique start and end times within a single day of the week. The total enrollment of those events is represented in a bar chart with green upward arrows for start times and red downward arrows for end times.
Questions the Passing Times Traffic Report can help answer include:
- How many people are entering or leaving a particular building at the beginning and end of the day?
- How many students are passing in the halls between classes?
- Do classes have consistent passing times?
- The weekday selector lets you choose which day of the week is shown in the charts.
- Sort By allows you to arrange the charts by building name or by overall volume of attendees.
- Order toggles the sort display in ascending or descending order.
- Chart Size offers two options for how groups are displayed in the report:
- Page Fit: charts are shrunk to a scale where all are visible on the same page
- Full Size: charts are larger, requiring you to scroll to see more
- The Scale Charts By setting lets you specify how each building's chart is scaled on the vertical axis:
- Building - Each chart is scaled to fit the data for that building
- Current Day - All charts share the same scale, with the maximum determined by the highest volume building on the selected weekday
- All Days - All charts share the same scale, with the maximum determined by the highest volume over all days

Assessing the Report Results
- What is the report showing you about start and end times?
- Are there any unexpected results? (e.g., small arrows that indicate a single class with non-standard times)
- Are more students passing in the halls at a given time than you have capacity to support?
- Can you change the start times of any classes to distribute passing periods more evenly throughout the day?
