Report Schedule Roles and Permissions 

Receiving dashboard reports as per your required schedule eases the task of visualizing dashboard data. You can create and customize schedules and download these schedules in PDF format. In UD, we have Report Scheduling and Report Schedule options that allows you to create, generate and view dashboard reports individually or collectively.

The Report Schedule Permissions are assigned to the Unit Manager, Scanner, and Reader roles by default. You can change the permissions assigned to these default roles per your organization's requirement and can also set the permissions according to the roles defined in your organization. 

This section covers about report schedule roles and permissions and applying those permissions. 

 

To access the Report Scheduling and Report Schedule option you are required to have the following permissions:
