Report Emails dont want as PDF attachment



I've created a new report, and also created a custom template. The report works fine, if I run it manually there is an option to "View report as HTML" or "Create PDF file, store it & send by email".

However, if I setup the report to run automatically on a schedule, and send to an email address, I dont have these options and I just get an email with an attached PDF file.

What I want to do is have the report run on the selected schedule, but the report HTML to be included as the body of the email & not as a PDF attachment. Can someone tell me how to do this ? Thank you.

attachment email html pdf reports

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very sorry, scheduled reports are only possible via PDF-Files. This cannot be changed. Sorry.

best regards.

This would be very beneficial to have as a feature. I dont want a PDF report. It looks good in HTML and much quicker to access and read.
