It is possible to create an analysis in the report series, set the time sets for it and then instead of choosing dates, to set a schedule for this report. There are three schedule types: Daily, Weekly & Monthly.
An example by using the Daily one:
A user wants to calculate three different reports for the same route and for the same time sets (all the reports contained in one schedule share the same routes and the same time sets) for December 11, December 12 and December 13.
After clicking “GO” to start processing, the system will start calculating three separate reports for the same route(s) for the same time set(s) and for the dates picked in the schedule like this:
1. A route in London, 12:00 – 20:00, 11-12-2019
2. A route in London, 12:00 – 20:00, 12-12-2019
3. A route in London, 12:00 – 20:00, 13-12-2019
It works the same with Weekly and Monthly option but instead of calculating the analysis for one day, it will use weeks or whole months. In those cases the start date should be chosen and the number of repeats.
This option also allows planning schedules in the future. In case the date range is in the future and the Daily schedule is chosen, a new report will start calculating in a queue each day once our system has the data for these days.
Keep in mind, that in case of using last days in the schedule it might take some time to process the data in the system to add the newest data. It might not be available straight away, but it can take up to a few days to implement it instead.
