Information about scheduling, downloading and distributing reports.
On April 21, 2022, we announced the deprecation of several features specific to scheduled reports in preparation for the previously announced end of life for Reports & Analytics. These features included the ability to schedule new reports as well as new data extracts. In response to customer requests seeking an extension and to ease the transition from Reports & Analytics, we have decided to extend access to these features until Jan 31, 2023. Please note that expiration windows for both reports and data extracts will continue to be limited to nine months; report and data extract delivery will pause at the end of this period unless the schedule is reactivated.

When you schedule a report for delivery in an Adobe Analytics application, you can use the Scheduling and Distribution tools to view what files have been automatically sent and modify or terminate the deliveries.
Due to differences in processing mechanisms and platforms, the various types of downloadable and scheduled reports available in Adobe Analytics have different limitations regarding the maximum number of rows they can process in a single request. Here are the limits of each:
These limitations are for individual scheduled and downloaded reports; dashboards are limited to the amount of space available within a reportlet.
The “Delivery Time” or “Time of Day” entered by the user specifies the time that the report should begin processing, not the time that it will actually be delivered. When the report will be delivered is based primarily on how long it takes to process. Complex and large reports take longer to process than simpler reports. For example, if a report takes 15 minutes to process, then the actual delivery time will be at least 15 minutes past the originally specified “Delivery Time” or “Time of Day”.
In addition, there are a number of other factors that can further increase the delay before the report is actually delivered:
To download and email reports in a variety of formats and schedule a report for delivery:
Run a report, then click More > Send.
Specify delivery options:
|Format||Select PDF or HTML.|
|Send To||Provide an email address to receive the report.|
|Subject||Subject of the email.|
|Scheduling||Select to send the report immediately or at a different interval.|
Click Advanced Delivery Options to specify a delivery schedule.
|Report File Name||Specifies the name of the report. The default format is
|Report Format||Lets you specify PDF, CSV, Excel, HTML, Word, or Mobile formats for delivery. If you select CSV, you can also specify the encoding for CSV:
|Send Digital Signature File||When you request a report, such as a bookmarked report or Data Warehouse requests, you can request a data signature. Adobe’s digital signature doesn’t restrict who has access to the data, but the purpose of the Digital Signature File (.sig) is to verify the validity of the delivered report file. Using the digital signature, report recipients can verify that the file came from Adobe and has not been altered.|
|Send Report Now||Sends the report immediately.|
|Schedule for Later||Displays options to specify a time frame and delivery options.|
|Report Time Frame||Fixed: Prevents the date from advancing as time passes. Rolling: Allows the date to advance as time passes. Some considerations:
|End Delivery Options||
To print a report:
Download detailed information about a specific report in PDF, CSV, Excel, or Raw Data Export formats.
In Analytics > Reports , select a report to view.
Select the desired format for the report:
If you use one of the raw export formats to download a report and the page name is blank, Adobe Analytics likely has not had enough time to process the data. Download the report at a later time.
Information about managing scheduled reports.
In the Schedule Reports Manager, you can edit and delete recurring report deliveries. You can create delivery schedules that send your reports via email or FTP to a specified address. You can configure these schedules to automatically send the reports at specified intervals for a duration of time or indefinitely, or stop the delivery of a recurring report.
The Schedule Report Manager shows the items that a specific user has created. If the user account is disabled in the application, all scheduled deliveries stop.
You can share a report by generating a report link (URL) to send to another user.
When the recipient clicks the link, the system requests login credentials (company name, user name, and password). After logging in, the recipient is shown the report generated by the original user. Standard permission restrictions apply.
To share a report link:
You can unsubscribe from scheduled reports. You will no longer receive the report even if your user name is re-added to the scheduled report.
In order for you to again receive the report, a new schedule needs to be created.
To unsubscribe from a scheduled report:
Bring up the email with the link to the report from which you want to unsubscribe.
Click the click here link next to To cancel automatic delivery of this report.
Confirm that you want to cancel the report delivery.
This workflow is the same whether you are the report scheduler or the report recipient.
Unsubscribing from a report does not cancel the scheduled report.
To cancel a scheduled report, navigate to the Schedule Manager and click on the red X next to the report name. More…
