Scheduling a Report on the Command Center


On this page

You can create schedules that automatically generate and email reports to specific users on a recurring basis.

Only users who either created the report schedule or who have ownership of the report schedule can edit, disable, or delete the report schedule.

If you want to send a report to an executive or someone who does not want to open a separate attachment, you can embed the report in an email body. Only the first 250 rows of each table appear in reports that are embedded in an email. These shorter tables provide a high-level summary of the information and improve readability. The row restriction also guarantees that the email remains a reasonable size for most inboxes.

The Email body option is not available for reports that are built using Data Cube or other Data Analytics reports.

For reports embedded in an email body, you can increase the maximum number of rows that appear in each table using an additional setting. For instructions, see Configuring the Number of Rows for Reports That are Embedded in Emails.
