Scheduling and automating reports

Reports only become scheduled or automated once the period is defined within the "Schedule" field. If no schedule is selected, the email will just be a one-off email. When you select a schedule, the following will be automated:

  • Emails will be sent on the selected schedule
  • The scheduled email becomes an automation and appears on the Automations page (Account > Automations)

You can adjust the schedule under the Automations page by clicking the automation's name:

This page includes a list of all changes to your automated emails, as well as a log of every time the automation acted.
