How to Schedule SSRS Report for Emailing

Automate 

Scheduling your SSRS report to automatically email reports is actually quite simple. All you need to do is determine how often you want each report to run. You also need to designate the output format you want to use. These options include Word, Excel, HTML, RTF, Acrobat, RPT, or text format. Lastly, tell the program where you want the report sent. You can schedule your reports to be automatically sent to email, but that’s not all. You can also send reports to a designated folder, printer, or fax. You can also have them sent to Dropbox, SharePoint, FTP, or SFTP. 

Schedule 

The ability to customize your SSRS report scheduler to fit your unique business needs makes it the perfect addition to your reports. With SQL-RD SSRS report scheduler, you can schedule reports to run on a specific date and time. You can even schedule them to run hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. You can even set the frequency of your reports, like running every third Monday of the month. If you need the same report to run multiple times, but need it in different formats, that option is also available along with varying formats and destinations. For some businesses, setting up an SSRS report schedule based on time and date is far from ideal. That’s why SSRS reports can also be scheduled to run based on event triggers. These triggers include events such as present database values or the modification of certain files. With SQL-RD report scheduler, your SSRS report schedule can be set up to fit your business’s delivery needs.
