Schedules - The Basics

How often will my scan run?

You can schedule a one time occurrence or have the scan run daily (or every 2 days, 3 days, etc), weekly (or every 2 weeks, 3 weeks, etc), monthly (or every 2 months, 3 months, etc).

How many times will my scan run?

Your scan will run indefinitely unless you set the "Ends after N occurrences" option. Enter the number of times you want the scan to run in the field provided. When the set number of occurrences is reached, the schedule will become inactive.

What if I don't want the scan run time to exceed a certain number of hours?

Select the "Cancel scan after" option and enter the number of hours you want to allow the scan to run.

Can I be notified each time the scan runs?

Yes. Go to the Notifications section and select the check box "Activate Notification" and specify when you'd like the notification sent - days, hours or minutes before the scan starts.

You can tell us which email address should be used in the notification. The From Address dropdown populates two options: email address of the scheduled report owner and email address configured in your subscription (for example [email protected]). Choose one email address from the dropdown.
