Save Time and Effort with the Report Scheduler

August 8th, 2018

If you’ve not yet explored the wonderful world of the Pinned Report Scheduler, what on earth are you waiting for?

Pinned Reports allow you to save and capture exactly that dataset that you need to run over and over, right?

Well, take the next step and schedule that report to run for you on an automated basis. We’ll deliver it right to your inbox; at whatever time of day, interval, frequency and format you choose!

What’s more? Certain FAST permissions now allow you to also create and share Pinned Reports with the members of certain GROUPS on campus and even schedule reports to deliver directly to those end users.

Imagine the help you’re providing your campus community by not only creating and sharing that report content, but also scheduling it directly via email.

This is a real game-changer for us and we’re sure it will be for you too!

We know you love your Pinned Reports….who doesn’t? But are you making use of the Report Scheduler yet? Once you create your own Pinned Reports, you can schedule them to deliver, right to your e-mail in-box at any interval you decide! That means you don’t even have to remember to “run” that report to get your hands on that data when you need it.

Here’s the skinny on how it works:

  1. Save your Pinned Report (as private)
  2. Click “Schedule”
  3. Choose a delivery schedule!
  4. You can pick everything from:
  • Frequency (Daily? Weekly? Twice a week? Monthly? Quarterly?)
  • Time of day
  • Duration (A couple weeks? A couple months? Till the end of the year? Forever and beyond?)
  • The format – choose from PDF, Excel or CSV
  • Hit GO and leave the rest to us

Nothing could be simpler! When you’re done, click on your “My Schedule” Tab to check out your delivery schedule at-a-glance and then just sit back and wait for those reports to start rolling in.
