Scheduled Email Reports

This feature is available in Enterprise Edition only

The Enterprise edition of SmarterStats has the ability to email standard and custom reports on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

  • Daily email reports are sent at 8:00 AM the next day.
  • Weekly email reports are sent at 8:00 AM every Monday.
  • Monthly email reports are sent at 8:00 AM of the first day of the month.

The reports are generated and sent by SmarterStats according to the time zone configured for that particular site. This gives the Web server a solid opportunity to flush all log files out and allows the system to import the previous day's log file before generating the report. Note: The time zone is configured during the initial site setup, but can be changed by logging in as the site administrator and editing the site importing settings. In addition, system administrators have the ability to change the default time that reports are sent after.
