Schedule a report or data export

Overview

Customers that use the new reporting environment can configure their reports/exports to update on a regular schedule and then email the updated content to themselves and an optional list of other users.

The schedule can be configured to run daily, weekly, or monthly. Additionally, a Send it Now option triggers an immediate update and delivery of the report/export to an ad hoc list of recipients.

The user defining the schedule can include anyone within their Acrobat Sign account. Included users are delivered an email from Acrobat Sign with a link to either Open a report or Download a data export. The recipient must authenticate to their Acrobat Sign account before receiving the data.

אזהרה:

Report schedules are generated with the owner's authority, meaning account-level users can create a report that includes all of the account data and then share that report with non-admin users.

All users can create schedules for their reports and exports with the following limitations:

  • Only one schedule can be defined for any one report/export.
  • Agreement reports only support the previous 60 months of data.

To create a new schedule:

  1. Select the ellipsis to open the action menu, or hover over the agreement record and select the Schedule icon to open the schedule interfce.

  2. Configure the schedule:

    • Schedule frequency - depending on the frequency iteration you select, there may be additional options:
      • Daily - The report/export executes at the same time the report was created. Every day.
      • Weekly - When selected, the option for the day of the week is presented. The report executes on the selected day at the same time the report was created.
      • Monthly - When selected, the option to select the day of the month is presented. The report executes at the same time the schedule was created on the selected calendar day.
    • Who do you want to send it to? - The list of recipients for the report/export.
      • Select +Add me to add yourself to the list.
      • Type in the email address of any other users in your Acrobat Sign account.
        • Attempting to add an email address that isn't in the account prompts an error.
    • Include a message - Provide an optional message that is included in the email to all recipients.

    Save when done.
