This article explains the difference between running and scheduling a report in Siteimprove's reports tool.
- Running a report generates a one-time report. Once the report has been generated it can be viewed online for 7 days. You can also choose for the report to be sent via email.
- Scheduling a report gives you the opportunity to automatically generate a report following a time schedule. Scheduling reports ensures that reports are received by selected users on a regular basis. Scheduled reports are archived in the reports tool (Reports-->Archived Reports) and can be viewed from the time you initially scheduled the report. Only the reports that you have scheduled are displayed, not reports that have been scheduled by other users on your account.
