What are the prerequisites for scheduling a report?

You can access the Schedule Report feature only, if you have the Schedule Reports system privilege. You can assign this system privilege to users in the User Management feature. For more information about assigning a system privilege see How do I edit a user? What are my edit options? in User Management.

Before you can schedule a report, configure your email settings in the Remote Notifications feature of Metasys UI. See How do I change the settings in the Remote Notifications feature? in Remote Notifications for more information. Only Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) type email settings are supported. POP Before SMTP type email settings are not supported for the Schedule Report feature.

Note: If the file size of the generated report exceeds the email server limit, which is by default 20MB, the report generation is successful, but the email delivery of the Scheduled Report may fail.

  2. Configure Sharing for the folder to share with Everyone.
  3. Set the Permission Level for Everyone to Read/Write.
