I just tired to cancel a Report. When running a Report a new Windows Service is running. PRTGReport something.

Just end that Task.

best regards,

@thorsten Lindner

A Report which is scheduled "Daily" is still showing a background Job Running . Seams like a Daily is not run once rather then run "all" the time but put on hold until the next TimeWindows pops up.

As the Problem is old als 2012 , the Problem is still annoying ... or tired as the USER from 2015 Pointed out.

Hello mviel,

cancelling report creation is not implemented as normally a report is run or scheduled when it is needed. Other features are in higher demand as of now which get them prioritized.
