Symantec Web Gateway can deliver reports at set intervals to email addresses, a remote computer by file transfer, or both. Symantec Web Gateway emails reports as .csv or .html files. When you configure an automatic report, the report is saved on the Reports > Saved Reports page.
To schedule automatic reports
In the Web GUI, click the report that you want to run automatically.
In the upper right part of the page, click Report Options and then click Save and Schedule.
Type a Report Name and Report Description.
The Report Name is displayed in the Reports > Saved Reports page and the report that is emailed or saved to the remote computer. Report Name and Report Description appear if you edit a saved report.
Next to Selected Data click one of the following:
Include the first number entries.
Delivers the number of entries that you specify from the report. The most recent entries appear.

Next to Report Frequency, click one of the following:
Do not schedule the report for delivery. Instead, save the report to the Reports > Saved Reports page for later use.
Schedule the report to be delivered once at the date and time that you specify. The report is still saved to the Reports > Saved Reports page for later use.
Schedule the report to be delivered at the interval that you specify. The 15 minute, 30 minute, and hourly reports are delivered starting on the hour. For example, Symantec Web Gateway delivers the 30-minute report at :00 and :30 of the hour. Symantec Web Gateway prompts you for when to deliver the daily, weekly, and monthly reports.
Next to Type of Delivery, check one or both of the following check boxes:
