Automatically run & email a report?

Recommended Posts

Hi @iHelpersLLC,

Just a complete guess but maybe navigate to the report in question to identify the URL that runs the report then setup a cron job to run it at your specified times.

but that would just run it - that might be fine if the report was coded to generate an email on running, but they're not.

Is it possible to automatically run and email a specific report every day/week/month?

you can't schedule them from the admin area by default - the ModulesGarden Report Generator addon can generate reports and email them to chosen admins on a scheduled basis...

remember that a report is basically just a SQL query with a means of outputting the results visually - therefore a custom solution might need to be a combination of a cron job, SQL query to generate the results and SendAdminEmail API call to send the email to the selected admin(s).

I can't think of any existing module that can do this other than MG's Report Generator.
