Your report appears on the Reports page. Time displayed on the report is in UTC format.

For all enabled report configurations, the reports are generated and sent to corresponding recipients based on the provided schedule and for the specified dashboard.

For example, let us consider a scheduled report with a dashboard duration of 10 minutes and a schedule configured for every 5 days with a start time of 15:30. The report is generated every 5 days at 15:30 as a PDF attachment. The attachment contains information for the specified dashboard within the selected dashboard duration, which is from 15:20 to 15:30.

Note: Some widgets such as Event types and Event trends are not supported in scheduled reports. When the report is generated for a dashboard containing unsupported widgets, the report displays Widget Type Not Supported in the PDF file.
