Scheduling reports

You can schedule reports to run automatically and send them in email to specified users. Reports help stakeholders to solve important business needs and make informed decisions.
For example, you can create a schedule to send the Open Tickets by Priority report in an email message to a supervisor every Monday. This information helps the supervisor make staffing decisions based on the team efficiency.
You must have system administrator permissions for scheduling the reports.
