Emailing Reports

You can also schedule a report to be sent via email on one of the following schedules:

  • Once
  • Daily (sent each morning)
  • Weekly (sent the day of the week you select)
  • Monthly (sent the day of the month you select)
  • Quarterly (sent first day of each quarter


Once you have set a schedule for a report, you can add other reports to that schedule. Reports that you add to a schedule are sent to the same list of addresses with the same configuration as the original.

Emails are sent for a period of 12 months. If you want to continue sending the same email after that expiration period, you can simply change the Effective Date under Admin > Views > relevant view > Assets > Scheduled Emails.
