Third Party Scheduling

T

his page provides information that details one of the ways to manage third party scheduling and emailing of results.

Of the many missing "features" of Discoverer is the ability to schedule and email reports. Scheduling can be done using one of a multitude of third-party scheduling tools. The one that I like is the native scheduler that comes with Windows XP . Coupled with Discoverer Desktop's command-line interface it has always been possible to schedule the execution of a Discoverer workbook and export the output in a selected format, to a named file in a named folder. The difficulty has been in the emailing of that report. While there are a myriad of ways to email something, one of the simplest involves a product called Febooti. I discovered, pardon the pun, this product a few days ago and purchased a commercial license straight away. Now I can honestly say that all of my emailing problems have gone away and I can finally put this issue to bed. Click here for more info.

Ordering online is fast, easy, convenient and 100% safe - for your protection and privacy, ordering service server software (SSL) encrypts all name, address, and credit card information when you order on-line. For all questions regarding software licensing or ordering procedures, visit ordering FAQ or do not hesitate to email febooti software sales department.
