SQL Server Reporting Services includes scheduling and subscription features, which you can use with Monitoring Server reports. When you schedule a report, you set it up to run at a certain future time. You can use one schedule for multiple reports. A subscription is a standing request to deliver a report at a specific time or in response to an event, and in an application file format that you specify in the subscription.

Subscriptions provide an alternative to running a report on demand. On-demand reporting requires that you actively select the report each time you want to view the report. In contrast, you can use subscriptions to schedule and then automate the delivery of a report.

For details on report scheduling, see Scheduling Reports and Subscriptions at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=144514 in the SQL Server Developer Center documentation. For details on subscriptions, see Subscription and Delivery at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=144515 in the SQL Server Developer Center documentation.

When you subscribe to a report, you may see internal parameters of the report that you do not see when viewing the report on demand. Be sure not to change any of these internal parameters.
