Maximizing Package Schedules: Scheduling Batch Crystal Reports

Scheduling batch Crystal Reports can often be a pain! In some cases you are forced to create a report subscription for each and every .RPT file. In other cases, attempting to combine the report delivery can cause more work than its worth. CRD’s package schedules enable you to export multiple Crystal Reports to the same user or group of users. Instead of the recipient getting several different emails containing one report, the user will receive one neatly presented email containing all of the reports. The reports can even be combined into a single file to make it that much easier for the user to view.

On a daily basis, Sally needs to send a report detailing their top grossing customers. This report details order amounts for each firm by month, and exports the report in Excel format. Users have been quite content to look at this report in the past, however, due to the increased order volume, the report has become unwieldy. Writing separate reports is too much time and effort. Sally needs a way of breaking up this report so that it's a much easier read for the users. Section group bursting in CRD (Crystal Reports Scheduler) is an easy way to burst Crystal Reports to multiple Excel tabs making it easier for users to view the information they want.

Your current Crystal Reports distributor only allows for one email account.
