I would like to schedule a daily report with a summary of yesterday's campaign costs.

It is easy enough to run a report like this but to schedule it is another thing altogether.

I searched "email report" in the Help section, to find the following:

_________________________________________

Schedule a report

Reports can be set to run automatically and be sent to you as an attachment in e-mail.

From within a report, click Save.

In the Save the current report dialog box, in the Report name text box, type a name for your report.

Optional: In the Description box, type a report description.

Select the Schedule this report check box.

Select the appropriate option button to specify how often you want to receive the report in e-mail.

Click Save.

_________________________________________

Having spent 30 minutes looking at every page relating to reports I for one can't see the "Save" button.

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would very much appreciate.

Hi,

When you're creating a report, just click the "Customize this report" link beneath Report Name. Beneath the drop-down menus that let you choose accounts, campaigns, etc, should be a check-box to "Schedule this template". From there, you can choose how often to have it run, then "Save as Template", and from my experience, the report will be emailed to the address listed in "My Settings" for the account...

Usually. My reports have failed for the last 2 or 3 days, but hopefully this is temporary...I was just about to call support when I saw your post. Either way, I hope this helps. Good luck!

shiva1299 - thanks for the advice. I would imagine the MSN help screen was created before the exisitng version of adcenter because there is no correlation between the two.
