Track the Reports You Distribute By Email or Through Agents
Track the reports you’ve chosen to send to people by email from the Console. Quickly see when reports were sent and which items are pending. Review, change, or delete your deliveries (scheduled or completed) from the same page.
Any agents that you set up to deliver content are displayed in the Console too. This way, all your delivery information is in one place.
You can filter the deliveries by their status to track deliveries most important to you. The various status messages are explained here.
Someone canceled the delivery.
Users can cancel any delivery that they own.
|Completed||Delivery ran successfully.|
Users can temporarily disable any delivery or agent that they own through the catalog.
For example, you might stop a job running on its defined schedule if you want to edit the report or change who sees the report.

Click the error icon to find out what went wrong so you can fix it.

|Running||Delivery is in progress.|
Administrators can temporarily suspend deliveries that other users set up.
For example, before you migrate from a test environment to a production environment, your administrator might suspend deliveries in the test environment, and resume them in the production environment.
Delivery timed out because it took too long to complete.
Something went wrong. Try to run the delivery again.
Delivery ran as scheduled but it wasn't 100% successful.
For example, the delivery specifies 10 recipients but only 9 of them received it because 1 of the email addresses was incorrect.
