There are two types of scheduled reports available:
- Email. When the due date comes a report linked to the schedule is sent by email to a specified email address.
- File. When the due date comes a report linked to the schedule is saved to a specified file. It is also possible to have the current date in the file name, for example date_%yyyy%%mm%%dd%.csv.
Scheduled reports can be run daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly. You need to create one or more reports before you can schedule it.
For example, to receive a detailed monthly report by email at the end of each month:
- Create a report as follows: Type: Detailed, Name: Last month, Show records for: Last month.
- Schedule that report to run Monthly and specify how you would like to receive it.
