Activate scheduled reports. This option activates scheduled reports.


The "Send reports" group allows you to specify when the reports will be generated, at what time and in what format they will be sent, data for which interval they will include.


Recipients. The field contains the list of addresses the message with attached report files will be sent to. You can specify several addresses separating them with a semicolon.


The "Included reports" list contains the list of reports that should be generated and sent. This list is based on the list of your favorite reports. So you need to create the list of your favorite reports first and then import it to the list of scheduled reports by clicking the "Import" button. Here you can leave only the ones you need in the list of scheduled reports. You can use the popup menu to delete a report from the list.


Email settings


For the report to be sent, you should specify the email settings. To do it, open the "Email settings" page (fig. 22).

Messages are sent via the SMTP protocol that is standard for sending emails. That is why you should open access for sending email for the program in your firewall. The program sends all messages using the sender data you can specify in the "From address" and "From name" fields.


Specify the mail server address in the "SMTP host" field. If the server uses a nonstandard port, specify it after a colon: www.aggsoft.com:2525


User name. This field contains the SMTP server username. Usually, it is the email address of the following type: yourname@yourserver.com.


Password. It is an SMTP server password that usually coincides with the mailbox password.
