Benefits of SSRS Scheduling

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is a server based report designer, builder, and deployment engine that is the brain-child of Microsoft. Companies use these services to prepare and deliver various interactive and printed reports. With SSRS, you can create tabular, graphical, and free-form reports that can be sent and accessed on demand. Besides SSRS helping to prepare and deliver reports, there is also an SSRS scheduling tool. If you want to know about the advantages and benefits of SSRS scheduling, we provided you with that information here.

Benefits of SSRS Scheduling

Simplicity

Scheduling your SSRS reports may pose to be a difficult task, but not with the SSRS scheduling tool  SQL-RD. This tool makes SSRS scheduling simple and easy to set up. All you need to do is set up a schedule that states how often you want each report to run. You can also determine whether you would like the output to be in Word, Excel, HTML, RTF, Acrobat, RPT, or text format, while also scheduling where you want it sent. With SSRS scheduling, your reports can even be delivered to folder, email, printer, fax, Dropbox, Sharepoint, FTP, or SFTP. After you finish setting your preferences, the SSRS scheduling tool does the rest for you. Your reports will be delivered on schedule every time.

Customizable

Not only is SQL-RD simple to use, but it can also be customized to fit your company’s specific wants and needs. You can create a schedule based on date and time or event triggers. With the date and time scheduling option you are able to set reports to run on a specific date and time. Another option is to have them run hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. You can also create your own custom frequencies to when your reports run. With the event triggers scheduling option you can program your reports to run based on specific events. For example, schedule reports to run when a file is modified, if a specific window is opened, or for any event your company needs to run reports in response to. The customization options of SSRS scheduling make it the perfect fit for any business.

It’s crucial for your company's report to run on schedule. Whether you need your reports to run based on a date or time or be triggered by events, SSRS scheduling is the way to go. With SQL-RD, SSRS scheduling can make running reports a breeze.
