Emailing Reports on a Weekly, Daily, or One-Time Basis

  2. Navigate to the item you want to email, click the More action menu, and select Email.
  3. Enter the email address for one or more recipients.
    Separate multiple email addresses with a comma. For example: jane.white@abc.com, steve.brown@abc.com.
  4. Customize the Subject line.
  5. Send the email Now or click Later to set a date and time in the future.
  6. To email report updates on a daily or weekly basis, click Repeat and then select Daily or Weekly.
You can check the status of email deliveries from the Console. See Tracking the Reports You Distribute By Email or Through Agents.
