Does Crystal Reports have automation features

I'm currently using the trial version of Crystal Reports 2013. So far, I haven't found any automation features. Are there automation features in the full version?

What I'd like to do is set up a package that can run repeatedly based on a set schedule. It would update the data of a report, run the report, and then export it in HTML format to a particular folder on my network. Can Crystal Report do this or do I need to get a third party application that can run Crystal Reports in an automated fashion?

    Hi Scott,

    You'd need third party solutions and there are plenty!

    A good place to know more about such tools is here:
