The Scheduler allows you to create, clone, edit, delete, and manually run report jobs.

You can use the Scheduler to create a report job that runs a query and delivers results on a regular basis, such as every hour or every day at a particular time, to any number of recipients at your company. These reports can be provided in a variety of formats, such as comma-separated text files, PDF documents, and Excel workbooks. You have the option to provide the report as a link or as an attached file. You also have the option to compress the attached file.

You are allotted a certain number of runs per month. These runs can be used for any number of scheduled jobs. For more information, see Run limit.

The Scheduler is accessed by selecting Admin > Scheduler from the workspace menu.
