SQL Backup Master allows you to schedule the creation of any available report type.

 

A scheduled report can either output a report file to a specific path, send it via email, or both. Scheduled reports are created in PDF file format for maximum platform interoperability.

 

Creating a Scheduled Report

 

Navigate to the Reporting tab of the SQL Backup Master main window, and click the calendar icon in the left-hand navigation strip. A listing of scheduled reports will appear, if any have been defined.

 

Click the Add toolbar button to create a new scheduled report. The Scheduled Report Editor window will appear.

 

Reports have the following properties:

 

Report type - Specifies the type of report to generate.

Email report to - If you want to deliver your report via email, enter the recipient email address(es) here.

Email subject - The email subject line to use when delivering reports.

Save report file to folder - If you want to save reports to the file system, specify a folder path here.

Zip report file - When selected, compresses the resulting PDF report file using ZIP compression.

 

Note that scheduled reports must either be saved to the file system, delivered via email, or both.

 

IMPORTANT: To deliver reports via email, you must first configure a Mail Server in the Global Options window.

 

Defining a Schedule

 

While in the scheduled report editor window, select the Schedule tab.

 

In addition to the execution date and time, you can also configure the creation of scheduled reports on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
