We have created some reports which are being distributed in pdf format via e-mail. The reports are generated for a certain list, defined in an excel file and everything is working fine.
However, it has been rather difficult to name the generated pdf file. We have already tried two ways:
i) include YYYYMMDD date format in the filename, under Reduced Document Name;
ii) name the report prior to the reduced field value
Nevertheless, none of these solutions fulfills our needs. We need to send different pdf files to the same e-mail address daily and, consequently, having the file named by date format has no interest for the receiver of the e-mails. On the other hand, the reduced field value consists in an internal numeric id which the receiver does not know - and shouldn't really know - that is: having a report_fieldvalue=xx.pdf means nothing to the person who receives the e-mails.
Thus, I would like to know if there is some way to customize the name of the sent pdf files according to our specific needs.
I believe I did not realize that the field selected under "Simple Reduce" was the one which affected the file name. Now, I have selected the desired field and the file name preview returns the name the way we wanted.
Just to check if i understood: this change you suggested impacts only on the file name - the reports will still be distributed for the same field value selected under the "Loop and Reduce", right?
