Send Email on Report Failure

We need an email sent to the report author when a scheduled report fails. This way, we could re-run the report or research the failure.

    This is a great idea, Watson Care Manager clients currently complain that emails do not land, when the schedule is broken.

    Getting an email, if the delivery option is set to email, when the schedule fails would be greatly appreciated for clients of Watson Care Manager.

    Thank you @Rick for the attachment.

    Is there a way to limit the results to only reports that are scheduled? (as opposed to all reports that ran)

    We created a report that runs daily and is sent to the administrators and they then contact the users.

    Attached is a file on how it was created.
