Data Based Reports Scheduling

Hello All,

We have a requirement, to schedule a report ( Webi / Crystal ) and send email to the users only when the report has a data in it, else it should not send a report when it runs and has no data in it.Do we have such functionality in BO ? ( Creating Events was other option as this is of low value and need to get the trigger file from other application, it would take more time and make it complex). Is there any way we can do it report level ?

    Good old challenge :)

    What is the version of BI Platform you are currently using?

    If you are using BI 4.2 SP3 or above, there is an out of the box functionality to filter out the recipients whose report has no data. Check:

    If you are using a older version, you can create a dynamic recipient list (a report with info on which user has data) and then use it in your publication.

    @Narashimman, Thanks for sharing the link which has having all the details of new SAP Business Objects 4.2 SP3. All the functionalities are working fine as per mentioned in the document.

    While coming to publication delivery options i am not able to see "Additional Options" tab on our installation. We are using SAP BO 4.2 SP3. Remaining all the options are working fine.

    Please let us know is there any configuration required to get that option.
