Does Places Scout have the ability to schedule ranking / reputation reports to be run on a periodic basis?

Yes, you can schedule both Ranking and Reputation Reports to run on a periodic basis. To schedule a report to run on a periodic basis, simply edit the report, and click on the ‘Report Settings / Report Scheduling’ tab in the edit report window. In this section, you can configure a report to run on a periodic basis with outlook-style scheduling functionality.

When a scheduled report is ready to run, a scheduled reports reminder window will appear with the scheduled reports listed. In this window, you can choose to run, dismiss, or snooze the scheduled reports in a similar fashion to the way Outlook displays and manages scheduled reminders.

By default, if you do not interact with the scheduled reports reminder window within 5 minutes, all scheduled reports that are due will be run automatically. You can change this behavior as well as change the wait period to auto-run scheduled reports by following these steps:

  1. Goto the ‘Settings’ tab
  2. Click the ‘Other’ tab
  3. In the ‘Other’ tab section, beneath the ‘Scheduled Reports Settings’ there is an option to auto run all scheduled reports if no user interaction within a specified time period that you can configure.

HINT: If you want scheduled reports to automatically run as soon as they are due, set the reminder minutes setting in the section to 0. If you do this, no reminder window will be shown, and all scheduled reports will be run immediately as soon as they are due.
