    Hello Marco, no we don't have such feature to schedule export of forms. It's something we could consider but not in short term.

    Hello, Maximilien!

    I guess I'm facing the same problem, so I can help to clarify the idea.

    Is it possible to schedule template queries to export them as flat files?

    For example: if I want to have my income statement exported every 10th day of the month as a flat file in the X directory, is it possible to schedule it directly from Cognos Controller?

    We already have other tools (like IT2, for example) that have this same feature, and it would be really nice if Cognos could do this as well.

    Could you give us a bit more details ? What type of format you need ? What's the purpose ?
