Creating Projects From Existing Collector Runs



Perhaps you mistakenly archived or deleted a project to which you no longer have access. Or maybe you requested access to a report from someone who retired from Dell or a Dell Value Added Reseller. Or perhaps you need to associate multiple collector runs to a new project. DPACK Users can associate one or more existing collector runs to a new project. The following steps show the End User how to associate an existing collector to a new project. This can be done with in-progress or completed collectors. 


Step 1:  Login to DPACK 2.0 with your credentials and access your profile

Access the DPACK 2.0 portal ( and login with your account credentials.


Step 2:  Click on View Collector Runs

On your Dashboard, click on the "View Collector Runs" button.



Step 3:  Search for Collector Run

There are two ways to search for collector runs associated with your DPACK 2.0 account.  First, you can search information (eg, Data Range, Collector Run Name, etc) and search for collector runs that match the criteria set.  Second, all collector runs not deleted are listed under the "Collector Runs"heading under the "Search Collector Runs" query.



Step 4:  Add Collector Run to Project

Click on “Add to Project” under your targeted Collector Run. From here you can follow the pop-up windows to Create your project. 



Step 5:  Enter new project name

Type in the name of your project in the blank field for "New Project Name" to which you will include your Collector Run. 


Step 6:  Request project processing

After creating your project, a prompt will appear stating, “Project Created – Would you like to visit the project page?”  Click the “Yes” button to go to your projects page.  Your report will need to be prepared by your Dell Systems Consultant. To notify them that you are ready to have your report created, use the ‘Request Report’ button to send the notification.

NOTE:  By Default, DPACK has selected a Dell Systems Consultant to process your report. To elect a Channel Partner/ Value Added Reseller to process your report, click the second radio button and enter into the blank field the email address of the Channel Partner.
