Creating and Scheduling Reports

Reports are downloadable files generated from custom views in the Explore section of the Dashboard, either run on a one-time basis (ad hoc) or as part of a recurring schedule. You can download these reports from the Reports section of the Dashboard.

Creating an ad hoc report

To create a new ad hoc report, create or adjust the Explore view you’d like to leverage for your report, select Save, then select Report. If you’re creating a new report, you’ll also need to give your report a unique name before selecting Save.

Your report will be accessible from the Reports page immediately.

Scheduling reports

To run reports on a schedule, create or adjust the Explore view you’d like to leverage for your report, then select the Set Schedule toggle from the Schedules & Alerts section. You’ll be able to configure the following schedule settings:

  • Repeats: The interval for your report schedule. Options include By the Minute, Hourly, Daily, Weekly, and Monthly.
  • Repeats every/on/at: The frequency at which new reports will be generated. The available options correspond to the interval you selected from the Repeats drop-down menu. For example, if you choose to schedule reports on a weekly basis, you can select specific days of the week to generate new reports.
  • Set Alert: If this toggle is selected, HUMAN will run reports as scheduled, but new report files will only appear in the Reports section of the Dashboard if those reports contain data based on your selected fields, metrics, and filters. (In other words, if a report contains no data, the empty report file will not be generated.)
  • Email Notification: If this toggle is selected, HUMAN will send an email with the corresponding report file attached for each scheduled report. If the Set Alert toggle is also selected, you will only receive email notifications for reports with a nonzero amount of data.
  • Send To: The email address(es) to which email notifications will be sent.

Note: By default, only certain authorized domains can be added as recipients. If you’d like to send email notifications to an email address whose domain has not yet been approved, please contact your HUMAN representative for assistance.

After you’ve finished adjusting these schedule settings, select Save to confirm your changes. 

New reports will be accessible from the Reports page each time your scheduled report is run.
