Schedules

Updated 7 months ago by admin

The Scheduler functionality of the Analytics section allows you to attach any Saved Report with a relative time span to a regular schedule so that the report is sent via e-mail to one or more recipients. The Scheduler can also be used to create an alert, by only sending an e-mail if the report contains any results.

Creating a new Scheduled Report

Visit your USS Dashboard and click Analytics section. Then click the icon on the Reports & Charts tab.

Click on the plus + icon to add a schedule.

Start date

Select the date and time for the first run of the report. This must be in the future.

Frequency

Select the schedule interval. This will determine the reports that can be attached to the schedule. The available reports must match the schedule interval or lower interval only. For example, if the chosen Interval is Daily, the reports that can be scheduled will only be for the Last Day or Last Hour.

Email empty report
