Create scheduled reports containing different timespans


#1

Hi,

I’m currently using Piwik 2.13.1 and faced with a request of a client I decided to post a thread here – after being unable to find proper information on either google or this forum yet.
My client wants to create a weekly report, emailing him the statistics of the past week as well as a monthly report, emailing him the statistics of the past month.
Yet there seems to only be a global timespan you can set for all the reports of a user and no option to adjust it for each created job. Am I missing something, is it a bug or is it working as intended?

Sincerely,
A. Kalkhoff

Hi there, simply create one weekly report and one monthly report. The reports will be emailed automatically as soon as the week/ month ends. see: Manage Email Reports - Analytics Platform - Matomo

Hi Matt,

that’s what I initially attempted based on past experiences. However, using version 2.13.1 I cannot define the timespan for the report, merely, at what intervalls the report should be sent.
When being on the page for “E-Mail reports”, the datepicker for the timespan is above the table containing individual scheduled reports – when adding/editing a report however, there is no datepicker for a timespan specific to this report.
E.g. I have one weekly report scheduled and one monthly report scheduled – if I set the datepicker (above the table containing both reports) to “year” and manually send both reports, I receive two E-Mails, each containing a report for the timespan “year”.
