Generating reports on a schedule

Yandex.Metrica can generate the report you need according to a set schedule. You can view this report:
  • In the Yandex.Metrica interface.
  • In email.

In addition, the report can be created in the background, if it takes Yandex.Metrica a long time to download it.

A report can be requested by the tag owner or a user with tag editing rights. If a user has view-only rights to tag settings and statistics, they can only view the requested report. For details, see Managing tag access.

A report can be requested if the report page shows the icon . You can request a standard report, or a custom one that is edited or saved by a user.

  • Archived schedules — a list of regular reports that are no longer generated and reports that you canceled. You can restart a report schedule on this tab.

If you want to change the report settings (for instance, add a metric or a dimension), go to the report from Standard reports in Yandex.Metrica and use the icon to make a new order.

  • Tag owner not found — the login of the user who created the schedule for this report was deleted.

  • Rights to the tag were revoked for the user — to restore tag rights, contact the tag owner or a user who has editing rights for the tag.

  • Error occurred when processing report parameters — create the report and the schedule again.
