    Can we schedule specific report to run?

    Employee

      Hi,

       

      We are trying to see if there is anyway we can schedule the report to run regularly (e.g. weekly), preferrably have the result to send out to the admin by email.

       

      Is there anyway we can do that?

       

      Thanks and regards,

      Winnie

          Yes - though that depends on the report.

           

          Reports that don't require input can be scheduled to run regularly and sent around an e-mail group.

           

          For instnace, try this:

           

          1 - Open up the 32-bit console

          2 - Go to TOOLS -> REPORTING/MONITORING -> Reports

          3 - Drill down to STANDARD REPORTS -> INVENTORY

           

          4 - Right-click on "BIOS Summary".

          5 - Notice that you have "Schedule Publish" - try that one.

           

          6 - Now, with the BIOS SUMMARY report being a scheduled task, right-click on the task and go into its properties.

          7 - Notice that you have an SMTP configuration tab... you can sort the configuration here.

           

          Also, notice in the RECIPIENTS-tab the bit of text explaining how to add e-mails to users. When you edit a user's configuration/permissions, there's a USER-tab where you add the e-mail address.

           

          The rest is pretty easy to figure out.

           

          Assuming you're an admin you can do the user-editing.

           

          NOTE -- reports that need input (such as STANDARD REPORTS -> INVENTORY -> Computer Installations by File ) are NOT possible to be scheduled, since they require input to be configured. There's an Enhancement Request in for such reports to be able to be configured with some default value for this purpose, so if that's something you need get yourself added to it.

            Hi Paul,

             

            Thank you very much for the detailed answers!

             

            Any reason why there is only scheduling for some of the reports (like BIOS Summary) but not others?

              Yeah - it's mentioned here

              So any report that requires some kind of input when you run it (i.e. - a date range, or a filename, or a device name) cannot be scheduled automatically at this point.

                Hi,

                 

                Can I change the date range in a report from the default 30 days to 7, then schedule it?

                 

                Thanks
