Bursting reports with email notification

Would like the ability to burst PAW reports as PDF.
Would like the ability to burst PAX reports as Excel Slice, Excel Snap-shot or PDF.
eg. TM1 Perspectives Print Report feature
With added email notifications and ability to email burst reports by reading the emails from a PA cube. Eg. burst 100 Cost Centre reports as PDF and email them to Cost Centre owners, which are defined by an Attribute with their email address held in the Cost Centre dimension or could be held by a PA cube.
Reports can either be emailed directly or written to a shared folder for users to access.

    We had an urgent need for this feature, so we ended up purchasing ReportWORQ from Quebit to do it.

    We also have nearly 100 customers that cannot move to Planning Analytics, unless there is a solution to output as PDF (and or excel) with page breaks by a dimension of cost/charge centers. (The PDF report output is a contractual obligation we have with the customer.)

    Highly recommend QueBIT's FREE Print Reports tool as a replacement for Perspective's Print Reports functionality. ReportWORQ from QueBIT has extensive functionality for Email, SharePoint and Slack distribution.

    This functionality in Planning Analytics for Excel is key to moving clients to the new interface without it; they will not move.

    I would recommend starting with first replacing the functionality that existed in Perspectives, then moving forward with everything that this person laid out.


Report Distribution outside of the Planning Analytics Workspace environment

We would like to be able to schedule a time and prepare different list of clients (using an email address ) in order to dispatch a set of reports via e-mail (in pdf or excel format), directly from Planning Analytics Workspace.
