Scheduling Reports in the Siebel Web Client

Scheduling reports is also possible by selecting the Schedule Report from the drop-down menu after clicking the Reports button. The Schedule Report window that appears includes a drop-down listing that allows you to select the report you are scheduling.

The Schedule a Report window allows you to specify the time and date when the report is run and select the option to generate the report with a recurring frequency.
