Scheduling Report Emails
In your WordPress Admin, select “WooCommerce” > “Scheduled Email Reports” from the left sidebar menu.
Click “Add New”.
Enter a title (for your reference only).
Optionally, customize the email body. The shortcodes [start] and [end] will be replaced with the start and end dates of the report date range, respectively.
Set the scheduled email report options:
- Recipient(s): The email address(es) to send the email to. If sending to multiple email addresses, separate them with commas.
- Subject line: The subject line of the email. The shortcodes [start] and [end] will be replaced with the start and end dates of the report date range, respectively.
- Email heading: The heading shown at the top of the email body.
- Schedule: Define the recurring dates and times on which to send the report email.
- Data interval: Specify how far back the report should go in days, months, or years.
- Include reports: Select which report presets to include.
Click “Save” (near the top right of the page) to save your settings and schedule the report. Alternatively, click “Save & Send Now” to save your settings and send a report email immediately.
Including HTML report in email body
- Adding the
[reports]shortcode to an email body will cause all HTML and HTML (enhanced) format reports to be included in the email body at that point, and not be attached
- Any non HTML format reports will still be attached
- There is a new setting, Appearance > Inline report table width. This can be set either to 100% (default) or a number. If it is set to a number, then the repot body is that width in pixels (do not include "px" or any other unit suffix). This is useful for reports with lots of columns since the default width may be too small.
- The reports embedded into the email body will not include user-specified styling, and HTML (enhanced) format reports will not include interactive features in the email (they will be inserted as a regular table)
[reports]shortcode is available since 1.0.15 version
Technical Information Regarding Scheduling
This plugin uses the WP-Cron functionality built into WordPress to schedule reports. By default, the scheduler is only triggered when someone visits your site. This means that low traffic sites may experience delays in reports being sent. If you are experiencing delayed reports, you have two options: Use a web-based scheduling service Use a service such as cron-job.org or EasyCron to trigger the scheduler at regular intervals (e.g. every 15 minutes - not the same as your report's frequency). Specify the following URL to execute:
[URL of your WordPress site]/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron Create a cronjob on your server See the following tutorials for instructions:
