How Report Scheduler Works
The best part of using report scheduler is that there is no additional effort needed to create CRM SSRS reports…as report scheduler uses CRM Views which can be easily created or modified using CRM Advanced Find.
With the release of new Version 11 of report scheduler, we have also added the functionality to deliver data via attachments – CSV or TXT files which can be directly opened in Microsoft Excel.
To receive the CRM View data as CSV attachment, below 2 additional configuration settings need to be performed:
Report Scheduler already sends the CRM View data to inline in email body in the tabular format. The additional CSV attachment option allows the users to directly open data in Microsoft Excel.
Further, this can also be useful where there is a need to extract data for backup purpose (for creating snapshot) on a regular automated basis.
If you have an existing version of report scheduler already installed then refer instructions mentioned in KB article “2.18 Upgrading to a higher version” for backing up and restoring existing scheduled records.
