Schedule Report

The Scheduled Report feature is for those merchants that want to have this report automatically emailed to them at certain intervals.  Clicking the Schedule Report check box will reveal the following Scheduling form:

There are only four (4) fields to be completed:

    1. Enter the starting date and time. 
    2. Chose the interval (Daily, Weekly or Monthly) from the drop-down list. 
    3. Enter the Subject text you want to see on your Email Subject line. 
    4. Enter the email address(es) you want the report to be sent to.  Separate Emails with a comma.

Generate Report

Once you have completed the custom settings, with or without the Schedule Report feature, click the "Generate Report" button.  If you have a short date range period set, you should see your report downloaded rather quickly.  A long date range will probably take considerable time to prepare the report.  You'll be notified by email when the report is ready for pickup.

If you indeed completed the "schedule report" section, your designated email address(es) will be sent an email from UltraCart Reporting on the frequency you indicated. The report will be attached for downloading/viewing.
