Scheduling Advanced Analytics Dashboards

Scheduling Advanced Analytics Dashboards

Users can schedule Personal, Group, or Netskope Library dashboards as well as widgets. In addition, schedule owners can manage (view / edit) their own schedules in their Personal, Group, or Netskope Library folders. However, if you are not the schedule owner, you may see a report listed in a schedule but you cannot view or edit the report. If you click the report link, the system displays an error message. 

Report Admins can view all scheduled reports listed in their Personal, Group, or Netskope folders.

Navigate to Advanced Analytics > Folders > Scheduled to view all scheduled dashboards and widgets.


The list view page displays the following information:

  • Name – dashboard or widget name (the same name may be listed multiple times. This means, the same report has multiple schedules and / or multiple owners.
  • Schedule – the date and time the dashboard or widget will be sent to the recipient(s).
  • Type – filter by dashboard or widget
  • Format – filter by format type: CSV, HTML, PDF, PNG, Table, Text, Visualizations, XLSX
  • Recipients – email address(es) of users scheduled to receive the dashboard or widget
  • Schedule Owner – email address of the user that created the schedule. Only schedule owners can delete a schedule.

Click the ellipses at the end of a dashboard name to view and manage the schedule.


The delete option is only available for the schedule owner. Deleting a schedule does not delete the report.

In addition, a deactivated user’s schedule is removed automatically from any scheduled dashboards. If all recipients unsubscribe from a scheduled email delivery, that schedule is deleted from the Scheduled list view page.

Admins can view details for the scheduled dashboard or widget such as create date, description, and activities.

You can filter a time range and one or more activities associated with the dashboard or widget. Activities include:

  • Access
  • Executive Access
  • Ad Hoc Run
  • Download
  • Export
  • Scheduled Run
  • Update
