When Scheduled Reports are Generated
Scheduled Report generation begins at midnight GMT according to the selected frequency for the report. It is delivered to the designated set of Email Recipients once the report is complete. The download link provided in the email remains active for 5 days. After 5 days, the link expires.
Scheduled Reports that contain more than 1 million records in the output file are not viewable through Microsoft Excel. Excel cannot handle a file of this size and will tell you that “the file cannot be loaded.” In this case, consider using filters in the report definition to reduce the report into multiple smaller reports.
Scheduled Reports are recurring and will continue to be generated on schedule until the Scheduled Report definition is deleted.
Editing and Deleting Scheduled Reports
From the Manage tab, you can edit or delete individual reports.
To edit a scheduled report, click the pencil icon. The Scheduled Report Editor appears. This is the same editor as is used when Building a report. See Saving the Report as a Scheduled Report for information on using the editor.
To delete a scheduled report, click the trashcan icon.
