Schedule a report

Follow these instructions to schedule a report when creating or editing a report.
You can schedule a report to run on particulars times with start and end dates. You can also add restrictions on the report content and the number of recipients. If you want to send the report to users by email, you need to add an email integration instance, such as EWS, Gmail, Mail Sender, and so on.
  1. In the
    tab, select the report you want to schedule.
  2. In the
    Next Run
    field, click
    or the date it was last run.
    If creating or editing a report, click next to the
  3. In the dialog box, add the following information:
    • The name of the recipients you want to send the report, if required.
    • Select the
      check box.

    Run with current user
    To change authorizations, go to

  5. Schedule a report according to one of the following methods:
    • Human view
      : Schedules a report according to the set number of hours. You can add days of the week with start and end times.
      When scheduling a report in the
      Human view
      Next Run
      date may be incorrect. You may need to change the number of hours field when scheduling the report.
    • Cron view
      : Schedules a report according to a Cron time string format, which consists of five fields that Cron converts into a time interval. Use this view to schedule a report on certain hours, days, months, years, and so on. For examples of Cron strings, see Schedule a Report Examples.
      When using the
      Cron view
      , the
      Start at
      fields may conflict with Cron string expressions. For example, when using frequencies (i.e. ‘/’) if you type the expression
      0 */6 * * *
      (runs every 6 hours), with a start time of 15.00, the next run time is not 21:00. The run time depends on Cron run times, which are 00.00, 06:00, 12:00, and 18:00 per day. In this example, the report runs at 15.00, 18.00, and then 00.00, etc. For examples using Cron generally, see Cron examples.
