Zap Report / View Scheduler App allows you to schedule Export of Reports to run at regular interval (Daily / Weekly / Monthly) and deliver in email.
SharePoint is widely used by many organizations to act as a central repository for documents that are shared across users. A very common request from our Report Scheduler App Customers was to provide a functionality – to upload the reports directly to companies SharePoint site where it can be accessed for company meetings – without all users having to login to Dynamics 365 CRM to see the reports. Besides these could also be very useful from historic record keeping point of view.
We are happy to let you know that along with email delivery option, we also have ability to automatically upload the Reports (excel / pdf / word / CSV) to SharePoint document library! (Please note that presently this feature is supported for Dynamics 365 SharePoint Online.)
Use Case: Automatically save Dynamics 365 – Sales Pipeline report to company SharePoint Site based on scheduled recurrence schedule:
Step 1: Configure Zap Report Scheduler App in your Dynamics 365 environment.
Step 2: Create Zap RS Configuration record: Here we select the entity, report, schedule pattern, delivery options, email recipients, report format. For details on configuring report using SSRS Report Scheduler App, refer our earlier blog: Scheduling reports in Dynamics 365 CRM Online using Zap SSRS Report Scheduler App.
Step 3: Configure the SharePoint Settings: A new section has been added to Zap RS Configuration form called as SharePoint Settings. As shown in screenshot below, here we can configure the SharePoint URL, document library, folder path, file name and time-stamp details:
Now automatically based on the scheduled recurrence pattern, the report will be saved to your SharePoint Site in the document library mentioned in configuration!
