Your question can be of general interest for many FLUKA users.
I understand that your need is to look at
the energy spectra of emitted radiation evolving in time after an
irradiation producing isotopes.
If this is the case then I think that a very useful complement to
the existing FLUKA documentation, for you and many other users, is the
the primer on radiation study with FLUKA presented by S. Roelser at one of
the recent meetings of CERN users.
and go to the link of the lecture of March 15th about "Radioactive
Isotopes Production and Decay"
