Schedule e-mail
With TAP Feed Pro reports can be scheduled to be emailed automatically to either a PDF, XLS or XLSX file type. In order to use the automated reports, you need to create a preset of the report(s) that you want to schedule. 
To setup the e-mail schedule for a report, go to the preset overview of the corresponding report. In the example below, we have navigated from the reports overview to the preset overview of the load report:
Schedule e-mail
