Scheduled Reports

The Scheduled Reports feature enables you to receive query reports, custom reports and predefined reports in specific formats at a specified time. The formats that you can receive these in include:

  1. CSV

  2. XLS

  3. PDF

By using this feature, you do not need to view individual reports. You can schedule them to be sent to you by e-mail at specific times. For example, you can create a scheduled report and configure the settings so that you receive an e-mail about specific custom reports and query reports that you have chosen, once a week. These reports are automatically generated, compiled and sent to you by e-mail once every week. You can also configure the settings so that the reports are sent by e-mail to more than one person.

You receive scheduled reports in the following formats:

  1. Attachment: You can receive the scheduled reports as an attachment in your e-mail account.

  2. Zipped file: In case you have selected a lot of reports to receive as a scheduled report, you can receive these as a zipped file in your e-mail account.

  3. URL: If the size of the reports exceeds the amount of megabytes that your mail server settings allow, you can choose to publish the reports that you have selected on the Mobile Device Manager Plus MSP server and send the path to it using e-mail.
