Only send report once (conditions)

Hi All,

I am looking to run my task multiple times each time checking a condition (to verify that the report was compiled today). If it is not compiled yet, I would like it to not send, but keep trying every 5 minutes. Once the condition is true, I would like it to email the report, then stop trying to send until the next day.

Is there any way to do this with the conditions and rules?

TYIA!

Hi

I think better solution would be task chaining using NPrinitng API and RESTConnector.

Say: you reload your Qlik App and as a subsequent task you run NPrinting report ONLY ONCE, all scheduled as tasks in Qlik QMC!

This way you would avoid running tasks every 5 minutes and will take away from NPrinitng server huge amount of work and at the same time you will get a very clear & robust solution.

This document is a step-by-step instruction on how to do it.

Let me know if this approach will suit you. If it will not then we will search for different solution.

cheers
