Scheduling Actions

From the Actions tab of your report schedule, you can add and remove actions, set as many as you want, and test them by running them immediately. 


Print File

Schedule a Print Job to a connected printer when report is generated. Select a primary and backup printer, print mode, number of copies and other options. Use this option for a simple print job that is sent to a printer accessible from the computer Ignition is installed on.





Upload your reports using an FTP server. Dynamically build the report filename and type.





Save your report to any folder the Ignition computer has access to. Same locally or on a network shared drive. Dynamically build the report filename and type.

If a report is saved as HTML, it will output both <report>.html and an images folder containing a .png of the report. Both parts need to be present to view the report properly.


Scheduling Actions - Save




The Scheduled Email Action will distribute a Report via email when it is finished.  Emails can be provided either by adding a list of emails in the Action interface, or by choosing from configured Rosters and User Roles.  The sending address, email subject, email body and file name are all configurable.  Subject, Filename and Body editors can utilize Expressions to dynamically add content or change names. 


Email Server settings must first be established in the Gateway by going to Configuration > Email Settings.  Once you created and saved an SMTP profile you can test your email settings on the Email settings page.  

With an SMTP profile functional, simply fill out the fields of your Email Action for scheduled reports to be emailed on completion.
