Batch Reporting User Guide


The Report Scheduling feature allows you to set up reports to run automatically according to a schedule. These reports will then be emailed to your nominated email address(es).


Only reports from the Reports Screen can be scheduled.
Reports from the Reports Screen that cannot be scheduled yet:
  • Custom reports (clients are able to request on a case by case basis for their Custom reports to be upgraded to accommodate the Batch Reporting Tool. Charges will apply for this work).
  • Custom datasheets that require users to enter in a parameter (queries that contain AskLongParam(), AskStringParam() or AskMoneyParam()). All other custom queries may be scheduled.
  • Statement of Child Care Usage reports
  • Balance Sheet
  • Carer Pay Details
