Scripted Reports - Scheduling


Reports can be run at any time, or they can be set to run on a schedule. The results of those scheduled runs are kept for later review, and can be automatically distributed to a list of recipients. Adding recipients can also give access to a particular report when their role doesn't give them access to all reports automatically.

One report recipient may receive a different set of results than another depending on their reporting hierarchy within Scaffold. 

Establishing roles and reporting hierarchies can be complex, to get a better understanding contact your LMS administrator or the Nine Lanterns Support Desk via Zendesk.
