    Why can't I schedule some of my reports?

    Rookie

       

      Some of my reports allow me to schedule them but some don't.  How come this is the case?

          The ones you can't schedule are the ones where you have to make an additional decision when you run them such as choosing from a list or selecting a date.  Those that can be scheduled are the reports that would just run if you double-clicked them.

            That was quick!  That seems to be the case looking at it now.  Is there any way this can be done differently?  I'd like to schedule some of these?

              You can't do anything with the built-in reports but what you could do is create your own custom reports and run them against the results of a query you build that has already made the selection.  So for example, if you want to see the software of a specific machine, the create a report that lists software, but make it run against the results of a particular query and then it is possible for you to schedule it since there is no user interaction required.

               

               

              This may not be the best example because I'm not sure what reports you actually want to schedule, but as long as the data is in the inventory and you can write a query for it you should be able to do this in some shape or form.
