Zap Report / View Scheduler App allows you to schedule Reports to run at regular interval (Daily / Weekly / Monthly) and deliver in email / upload to SharePoint. Apart from this the app can also generate reports using flows/workflows based on defined trigger.
In this blog, we will go through the below requirement and show you as how easily this can be achieved using “Bulk Scheduling” feature of Zap Report Scheduler App:
Requirement: I have a Sales team of 15 Sales Managers and need to send them report of “Opportunities nearing Close date” every week. However please note that each sales manager should receive only their records and not everyone’s.
A traditional approach to achieve this requirement using Zap Report Scheduler App would be:
- Create opportunity close date report with filter: Owner Equals Current User
- Create 15 different “Report Scheduler Configuration” records with each one having owner set as each sales manager
Isn’t that a lot of work? to not only build but also to maintain!
Zap Objects now brings to you a new innovative approach called as “Bulk Scheduling” which would achieve this requirement with just 1 Configuration record…greatly simplifying the task of creating and maintaining the schedule!
Let’s see a demo of how bulk Report Scheduling works:
