Scheduling a report is a common requirement. An example might be someone would like everyday an end of day report. Yeah you can do it manually, and everyday whoever runs the end of day has to stay back. Run it with that person's criteria. Then wait until the report is done. Save the report and probably email it out.
A better way is to use our software built-in report scheduling capability. You schedule set of such reports. You specify when they are to be done. Once set up it will send it to them automatically. The reports' generation process is completely automated.
People tell me this scheduling of end of day reports saves them 40 minutes a day.
We and others received contradictory information from "News Limited" and "The Advertiser" over the proposed scheduled Saturday cover price changes.
Because they could not clear it up in time, we did not update automatically this new cover price even though our guys waited until the last minute. I expected something better from News Limited.
