@dparab27 - You are correct in that there is no capability today within FlexNet Manager to schedule/email reports.  If you have FNMS On-Premises, the FlexNet Analytics module (powered by IBM Cognos) has the ability to schedule and email reports, using the built-in capabilities of IBM Cognos.  This is not available today for FNMS Cloud Analytics.

The good news is that Flexera recognizes that this type of built-in capability is extremely important to our customers and is coming soon for both FNMS On-Premises and FNMS Cloud.

With FNMS Cloud, you do not have the ability to schedule and email reports from Analytics.

Hi @kclausen, as of December 2019, Analytics in the Cloud did not have schedule and email capabilities. I wanted to check in and ask if this has changed, or if/when the capability is coming?

@kyle_wolff - I have not heard any further update on this functionality being made available in FNMS Cloud.  I do know that a set of published Restful APIs are in the works and will be made available later this year to enable FNMS Cloud customers easier access to their hosted data.
