If you provide an email address when you create a schedule entry for a report, that creates a subscription to the report. The report will be mailed to the recipient at the intervals that are set for the scheduled period — daily, weekly, or monthly. You can provide multiple email addresses as a comma-separated list.
Note that if your subscribe to a report that has not been scheduled, the subscription also schedules the report generation. However, Operations Manager does not save duplicate reports on the server. For example, if you schedule daily generation of a report, and create a weekly subscription every Friday, Operations Manager does not save two reports on Fridays. On the other hand, if you schedule a weekly report for Mondays, and then create a subscription for Fridays, Operations Manager will save two reports a week — one on Monday and another on Friday.
The subscriptions appear in the Schedule Reports panel. Any entry in this panel that has an email address is a subscription.
