Guidelines For Adding Report Schedules

  • You can only schedule standard reports or custom reports that were created by copying and modifying a standard report using the Interactive Reports Report Engine.
  • The Begin Report Schedule On field is set to tomorrow’s date by default, so you can’t set a report schedule to begin today.
  • Report schedule repeat options are limited to daily and weekly. If you need to set up a report to run monthly, set the weekly repeat option to every fourth week.
  • If the report you’re scheduling has a Report Date, Start Date, and/or End Date parameter field, use these fields to enter how many days of data from the scheduled date the report should include. For example, if the report you’re scheduling has Start Date and End Date parameter fields, and you want the report run weekly on Monday and to show data for the previous Monday - Friday, you’d enter -7 in the Start Date field and 5 in the End Date field.
