Scheduling Exports

This feature lets you automatically produce exports at specified intervals and send them to an email address. The Schedule option is available from the Export dialog that displays when you perform an export. Once created, you can then view, manage, and download your scheduled exports using the Download Manager. For more information on the Export feature, see Exporting Data.

Select Email Addresses

If a schedule is created in Qrvey Composer, the exports are sent to the email address of that Qrvey Composer user.

Note: To display the email address for a scheduled export, in Qrvey Composer, open Download Manager, locate the export in the list, click its three-dot menu, and click More Info. The email will be listed in the Owner field.

In embedded scenarios, the exports are sent to the email address specified in the widget’s configuration object. Use the following property:

authenticatedSession.email

For example:

authenticatedSession: {
email: jq@qrvey.com
}

If an address is not specified in the configuration object, the exports are sent to the email address associated with the user ID.

Enabling and Disabling the Schedule Exports Feature

In Qrvey Composer, the Schedule Exports feature is disabled by default. To use this feature, your user account must have the Exporting and Scheduling Exports permissions, which is configured in Qrvey Admin Center. For more information, see Managing Users.

In embedded scenarios, the Schedule Exports feature is enabled by default. To disable this feature, set the following parameter to true in the widget’s configuration object:
