Best practices for scheduling a report
Scheduled Reports work best when they are already sorted. For example, you can save a "Top products" or "Top customers" report. When you schedule a report, the top 20 results from the report will be delivered to your inbox.
Here's how you can create such a report:
Another best practice to for Scheduled reports is to use the 'Last' function within Date Presets: Last 7 Days, Last Week, Last Month, Last Year, etc. This ensures the full data of the date preset selected to be included in your scheduled reports generated. For example, if you a scheduled report that has the date preset of 'This week', as the reports are delivered on a Monday, you will not have the full data (or no data at all) for the current week. The generated report will only pull data prior to Monday's data, which isn't a full week's worth of data. This is the reason to use the 'Last..' date preset as a best practice.
