Scheduled reports will automatically send an emailed copy of the report to the user, as well as any additional recipients that were entered when the schedule was created. These emails can be turned off by inactivating the report's schedule. This article walks through the steps to disable a scheduled report.
Note: Users can only disable reports that they have scheduled for themselves. If another user created a scheduled report that has a different user on the distribution list, the user that created the schedule will have to adjust or disable the schedule to stop the email from being sent. The PDF or CSV file containing the report will state who the originator of the report is.
On the Reporting page, users can easily see which reports are scheduled by looking in the Schedule Report column. This column will display if a report is not scheduled or the frequency of the report.
In the above screenshot, we can see the first report is scheduled to run and email Daily. To disable this report, click on the Daily link.
Clicking on this link will open the Schedule Report window, which presents all of the scheduling options for the report. To learn more about these options, head over to the Configuring and Scheduling Reports article. Also note that the schedule can be altered here, so instead of turning off a report, the frequency or distribution can be adjusted.
To disable the report, click on the Status dropdown menu and choose Inactive.
Save the schedule settings, and the window will close. The report has now been disabled and will no longer generate. To confirm that the report is not scheduled, head back to the Reporting page, and look in the Schedule Report column. The report should now display Not Scheduled, rather than the previous frequency that was listed.
