Adding and editing scheduled jobs
You can run reports as they are needed, or you can use the Scheduler > Add Job page to create jobs that define a schedule for running one or more reports. Once a job has been created, you can use the Scheduler > Edit Job page to change the job details, for example editing the reports in the job or altering the frequency.
