Once you have created a custom report profile, you can set up schedules to run the report automatically at specified time intervals. You can also configure Firewall Analyzer to automatically email the report once it runs.
|Scheduled reports are generated and emailed only as PDF files. If you are viewing PDF reports on a Windows machine, make sure you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed.|
