Selective Broadcasting OF web reports

Hello,

We have a report that displays Sales Amout by Region.

We need ability to send the Alert/Web report to the Regional Sales Manager when the Sales fall below perticular threshold.

We have a condition in our query that works just fine for that purpose. And the Information Broadcasting works fine as well.

Issue is we have over 150 Regional Sales Manager and I do not wish to create 150 Information Broadcasting settings to be run nightly.

Is there any other options to achieve this functionality.

Thanks,

    Hello,

    If I've understood your question, If you need to send the alert to all the 150 Regional Sales Managers(RSM), then include all their mail ID, and you need not create settings individually.

    See these links

    Hi,

    If you want the Regional Sales Managers to see data or get an email when the Sales of their particular region has gone below

    the threshold value, first you need to make the Region Authorization relevant to control access to the Region Specific Data and do the necessary configuration for the Roles.

    Secondly, in the distribution in Broadcasting, you can specify the Users in Role, which will take care of this.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Tom.

    Thanks Tom,

    So this will require 150 Roles ( one per region ) and 150 Information Broadcasting settings. And to schedule these settings to be run every night. Infact, I want to avoid creating 150 settings OR scheduling 150 broadcasting settings.

    I want to run only those broadcasting reports for which threshold has reached. If only 2 managers need to be notified I dont want to run other 148 broadcasting settings- just to check it.

    Thanks for your interest
