    • Monthly: Reports generate monthly on the first, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, or the last day of the month.

  12. Specify the data range:
    • Reports include data up to the Start the schedule time specified below: This means that a report could have up to 23 hours more data contained in the report. While this has a small affect on weekly or monthly reports, this can make a "daily" report with almost two days worth of data depending on the Start schedule time.

    • Reports include data up to 23:59:59 of the previous day: This means that data collection for the report stops just before midnight. Reports will be an exact time period (example: Daily reports will be 24 hours) but will not contain the absolute latest data.

  13. Specify when the report schedule starts:
    • Immediately: The report schedule starts immediately after enabling the report.

    • Start on: The report schedule starts on the date and time specified in the accompanying fields.
