Summary

CrystalKiwi Scheduler automates the distribution of your Crystal Reports. You can have it automatically send reports on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. Parameters and output file names can be dynamically based on our advanced field processing features. Built using the Crystal Reports 2011 and Dot Net Framework 4.0, it supports the latest versions of Windows and Crystal Reports.

Automatically send reports in your desired format. All of the people you decide to send a given report to at a given time will get that report, even if you're on vacation. Because it runs as a Windows service, you don't have to be logged in for the reports to run. Security, convenience, and productivity--now you can have it all.

Features

Compatible with Crystal Reports 9.0 and can process all later versions of Crystal Reports.

  • Distribute automatically (automatic publication of your reports).
  • Dynamic recipients.
  • Bursting.
  • Parameter control.
  • Multiple email addresses for one report.
  • Database password security control.
  • Many output formats: Export files in such formats as Crystal Reports (rpt), MS Word, MS Excel, Rich Text (RTF), Comma Separated Variable (CSV), HTML, and PDF (requires Crystal Reports 8.x or higher).
  • Exception reporting.
  • Independent of your email client.
  • Independent of your e-mail server.
  • Reports displayed in the body of your email message.

Usage

Use the scheduler to:
  • Schedule reports to run at a specific date and time: once, hourly, daily, business days, weekly, monthly, or last day of month. Distribute automatically.
  • Send reports by email, in any of the available export formats.
  • Run the same report multiple times with different parameters and/or destinations.
  • Maintain an external list of values and destinations for a group of scheduled reports.
  • Modify report formula fields (including Record Selection and Group Selection) and database locations.
Installation/usage note: It's usually best not to install a scheduler on the same machine as Crystal Reports. That could cause conflicts.

Benefits

CrystalKiwi Scheduler...
  • Works with reports and subreports that require secure database login.
  • Schedules your reports to run at a convenient time so you don't have to be there or to wait for them to finish.
  • Can send your report as an email attachment, print on any system printer, or save in a variety of formats to a disk file. And it can do much more.

Use CrystalKiwi Scheduler to:

  • Increase productivity. Once you set your options, your reports will be sent regularly to wherever you want. You can say what time and how frequently your reports will run, all without user intervention.
     
  • Enjoy extra flexibility. One report can be sent to multiple email addresses. You can send to remote or local printers or folders. Emailing is independent of email client or email server. If your email server is unavailable, CrystalKiwi Scheduler will hold the output until the server is available.
     
  • Keep control. You manage the list of reports. You can set parameter input and a list of email addresses for each report. Database passwords are controlled by you rather than the recipients needing a password.

Security

The security features in CrystalKiwi Scheduler provide you with added protection. You can:
  • Base the database connections on a user and password.
  • Integrate database connections via active directory to use the current logged in Windows user (disables the fields for User and Password).
  • Selected integrated security for one database connection, and a user/password security for another. Each is applied independently of the other.

CrystalKiwi Scheduler stores its database connection information in local XML files. You can set each password to be encrypted. Once you have done this, somebody can't unset that option to defeat it (we don't want unauthorized users using this form to decrypt user passwords).

If you want the ability to forward messages, some email servers require an SMTP user and password to connect to the mail server. If your email server is one of those, you need to tick the box that indicates you require STMP Authentication. You can then enter the user and password the email administrator sent you.

This scheduler saves the SMTP password on your local machine. If you want to, you can encrypt that field in the file. Once you have done this, somebody can't unset that option to defeat it (we don't want unauthorized users using this form to decrypt user passwords).

To revert back to storing passwords in raw text format, you must stop any CrystalKiwi applications (including the CrystalKiwi Engine windows service), delete the SMTPSetting.xml file in the ProgramData\CrystalKiwi\Shared folder, and then restart CrystalKiwi Explorer and re-enter all security information. Yes, that's a royal pain but making it so is the point. Anyone who can do those steps will need pretty much the full suite of authorizations and access.
