Publishing lists provide an easy way to send various reports specific to different groups of your organization without creating several separate scheduled reports. It is more useful if user have location-specific report suites and would like to provide each respective department a copy of a specific dashboard.
However, there are times when this option is disabled and we are not able to utilize this functionality to the fullest.
This option will be grayed out if there was is publishing list created for the analytic account. Here are the steps to create a publishing list:
- Navigate to Admin > User Management (Legacy)
- Click on tab Publishing List Manager
- Create a new Publishing List under this interface.
- Once you create a publishing list, its option will be automatically be enabled while scheduling reports.
