Hi,
we have 5 report-profiles in a folder's properties-form. 2 of them are checked for "Generate reports every 1 min".
This is working fine.
The other 3 reports which are not checked I would like to run weekly.
In order to do this we have an action-profile scheduled for weekly execution. To this action-profile I add an action "Generate reports". In its config under "Generate reports for specific folder / view" I end up in the same folder-properties-form.
How can I mark the desired reports here without changing the minute-schedule?

Thanks,
Christof

I think you need 2 folders. Parent folder can be empty (without test items) and contain 1 subfolder (with test items).
Then
- specify 2 reports for subfolder using "Generate reports every 1 min" option
- select other 3 reports using parent folder and setup action for parent folder

Regards
Alex

Thank you Alex.
However I don't like this solution too much as it brings another folder the meaning of which is not clear to the operators.

I have another thing I'm wondering about, and it is related to the topic:
We have changed the HM-installation from a german OS to an english one.
There are still hourly reports coming to the old directory C:\Programme\HM\reports and I cannot find out where they come from in order to change the path.
I checked the folder-properties where reports are defined.
I checked the action-profiles and its properties (we have an hourly schedule there) - nothing.
How can I trace back where these reports come from in the config?

Many thanks!

Then you may use HM Script action with SetCurrentFolder and CreateReport commands

Check the following
- Reports page in Options dialog
- Reports page for each Folder and View
- HM Script files if you are using Execute HM Script action

Another option:
- if you know what profile is used for this report, select Report profile and click "Usage report" button.

Regards
Alex
