Bursting Reports to Email from Cognos on Demand

Bursting reports that are migrated to Cognos on Cloud no longer burst to email recipients. This is an extremely useful future when generating reports for sales teams where the region/area of the report does not change but the person responsible does. Bursting the report allows the associated email address to be updated in the associated database configuration table.

The work around has been to create a new version of the report using a parameter for the state/region and schedule the report to run and send to an email address. This involves greater administration overhead.

    The report bursting capability is one of the few functional gaps between CA on Demand and CA Hosted - For small businesses who are too small for CA Hosted, there does not seem to be a viable option for getting this capability. Adding this capability on CA on Demand would attract further customers to use this service.
