Hi Jürgen

Thanks for your feedback. I think you are right that I should probably 
be using `sreport` for this. I think there must be some other reason 
that `sreport` is not showing me any actual output. Perhaps the 
explanation could be that we currently do not have users organised in 
accounts. We just have one big pile of users. I will look further into this.

Best regards,
