General Configuration:

  2. Uncheck the option Use Prolink's Default Server Setting (this is for testing only).
  3. Enter your company's SMTP server information in the Server Information fields.
  4. Enable Allow emails with attachments to be sent so you can receive a copy of the report by email.

 For Manual Reporting:

  1. Click the Print button and your report will be generated and emailed as you specified.

For Automatic Reporting:

  1. Click Report > Automatic Reporting (Off) to turn on automatic reporting. If a check is already present or the menu ends with "(On)", skip this step.
  2. Click Report > Set Up Automatic Reporting.
  3. Un-check Use default Report settings.
  4. Under Print To..., select "File".
  5. In the File Type box, choose your desired File Format.
