Learn how to Schedule a Report or Alert

Report: How to create a Scheduled Report.

The easiest way is to build the report you want on the screen and then click the “Save” button at the top of the screen. Or you can prepare your report structure in the Custom Filter and click “Save” either way is fine. Tip: Sometimes just to speed up you can go directly to the Custom Filter especially if the data size is huge and all the flows (NetFlow Auditor Professional/Enterprise) are being archived.
