Scheduling – Once Off Schedule
Reports and dashboards can be scheduled to run automatically at a given time/date, or on multiple occasions.
Setting a Once-Off schedule allows you to set a report or dashboard to run once, immediately, or on a given date and time.
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.
