Can I generate a report based on plain txt message?



I need to generate a report at the end of the day, or every 24 hours, but instead of deliver a PDF file as its implemented in PRTG, I need to send a TXT plain text to an specific email address or into an specific directory, to be catched by other process.

Other way is to schedule a task, but I don´t know how.

Could be this possible?

Thank you!

Sorry this is not something that can be done with PRTG at this moment, you may be able to have them printed to PDF then translated back to text and sent but this is not something that we support.

Is this still true ? Reports can only be sent as PDF attachments ?

Yes, PDF and HTML are the only formats that PRTG can generate reports in.
