The Report Scheduler offers many different options and combinations for scheduling your report.
If you are defining a recurring report, you must choose an End Date and either one option from the Recurring Schedule section or the Advanced (specific units) section or options from both.
NOTE: military time (24 hour clock) must be used when configuring the Run at Specific Times - On Hour(s) setting. Ex. when scheduling a run at 3:00pm, set the On Hour(s) to 15.
Below is an example of how you might schedule a report to be emailed:
Note: A semicolon should be used as a separator, If sending the Report to multiple User's Emails.
Note: If you are not receiving your scheduled reports in your email, this troubleshooting article may help: Why am I not receiving scheduled reports? You may also want to check that the user account that is configured to execute the reports in the schedule has permission to access and run the selected report.
Note: Make sure the "if server restarts launch process" switch is enabled for recurring reports. If this switch is disabled recurring reports will not run after the server reboots.
