Scheduling – Calendar Recurring Schedule
Reports and dashboards can be scheduled to run automatically at a given time/date, or on multiple occasions.
Setting a Calendar Recurring Schedule gives you more control over the recurrence of your report or dashboard schedule.
You can choose to run at selected times, days or dates, in selected months. You can also select the start and end times for the report schedule.
Reports and dashboards are a more formal way of displaying information captured in an Ad Hoc View. Reports and dashboards allow you to share the information with authorised persons who may not have access to the BI system.
