Email Reports as Attachments

It would be great to have the ability to automatically have reports emailed as attachments once they are complete. I know in Report Writer you can request an email when the report is complete, but that only has a link so a person can login to the admin side and then view the report. It would be nice to be able to just automatically email reports to individuals who aren't admins with access.

    Email is inherently insecure and reports contain constituent information, creating/sending attachments are very resource intensive processes compared to serving the same information online, and large files are often blocked by email clients. However, you wanting to be able to share report information with other users (non-admins) with a link is something we're definitely thinking about and keeping in mind as we work on the next generation of reporting because I think we might be able to achieve that same result with expanding the link-sharing capabilities rather than adding attachments to emails.


    Thanks for submitting your idea!
