Crystal Reports schedulers: we offer five schedulers to meet your Crystal Reports scheduler and report distribution needs.

A Crystal Reports scheduler is software that automatically distributes your reports; it sends specific reports to specific people when you want (specific time or interval) and in the format you want. We offer Crystal Reports schedulers from several developers, so you can find the solution that best fits your needs. All of these Crystal Reports schedulers have a free 30-day trial; and unlike some other offerings, each is a one-time purchase with no annual contract or fees.
What can Crystal Reports schedulers do for you? First of all, you can free yourself from manual distribution of your reports. Other advantages:
  • No security leaks: these schedulers work within the framework of your database security so they can can send reports with live data.
  • Send it your way: send your report as an email attachment or, if you want, in the body of the e-mail.
  • Print or save: send your report as a print job, or save it as a PDF (or whatever format) in your filing system.

And there's more.

  • Increase productivity: the scheduler sends each report when and where you want, in the format you choose; you can also tell it to print the report, save it to file, or email it.
  • Enjoy extra flexibility: you can set the scheduler to send one report to multiple email lists, and you can send to remote (or local) printers or folders.
  • Keep control: you manage the report list; you can set parameter inputs and a list of e-mail addresses for each report.
  • Stay secure: you control the database login via the scheduler, so recipients don’t need a password to view the report.
Automatic or burst distribution
These Crystal Reports schedulers include many features that make your life easier; here's a partial list.
  • Database security control: you set up the passwords and permissions that make sense for you.
  • Exception reporting: if something goes wrong, it will tell you.
  • Many output formats: if it's a format Crystal Reports uses, our schedulers can send the report in that format.
  • Parameter control: you can determine which parameters get set and what their values will be.

You can have the report scheduler automatically send:

  • The same report to multiple e-mail lists or different reports to different lists.
  • Reports at specific intervals (e.g., the monthly budget report) or at specific times (e.g., at 0700) and/or on specific dates.
  • Subreport-variations of the report as separate distributions, which means you can parse out with precision the information specific people or groups should get.

Need good e-mail features? These schedulers can....

  • Display the report as the content (in the body of ) an e-mail (or as an attachment).
  • Send e-mail, regardless of your e-mail client and even if your e-mail server is down.
A Crystal Reports scheduler can definitely make report distribution easier. Not sure how you'd use it, exactly?

You decide....

  • Which people get which reports and send automatically.
  • When people will get those reports and deliver on time automatically.
  • Which format is best, and the scheduler will send in that format.

Send, print, or save.

  • Send your Crystal Report as an email attachment.
  • Print your Crystal Report on any system printer.
  • Save the report in your preferred format (if supported by Crystal Reports).

Modify as needed.

  • Modify report formula fields--change Record Selection, for example; changing Group Selection is also particularly useful.
  • Modify database locations.

Automate even further.

  • Use an external list for distribution or content. For example, you have a list of values; or maybe yours is a list of destinations. You can assign the list to a group of scheduled reports.
  • Run a particular Crystal Report multiple times. But change the parameters so users get a different version, and/or change the destination for each run.

Burst distribution

Most Crystal Reports schedulers include report bursting functionality. But if that functionality is all you want, then you can install CrystalKiwi Bursting for that purpose and have a much smaller footprint (and you save money).

With this report bursting tool, you can send a personalized report to multiple recipients via email, save it to disk, or send it to a printer. For example, the national sales director wants to capture a snapshot of last month's product returns and so she can address that issue at this year's sales training camp. It's not a regularly scheduled report, so how do you meet that need? With CrystalKiwi Bursting, you can just send it out when it's done and not worry about setting up a schedule.
