report and file attachment

Is there a way where the tool can attach the actual report in the email as an attachment when we schedule it to run?

 

Right now, the best it can do is in this format.  Users will then have to click on the link to get to the report, whereas if it's sent via an attachment (.html or .pdf), it's more convenient.  Anbody ever ran into this situation? Thanks.

Wow, that was back in 2010 when it was submitted with 7.5.  I think that using snag-it or whatever they recommend defeats the purpose of running the report automatically.  The whole thing is to schedule a report that runs daily or whatever period and have it send out to users with an attachment of some sort.  That way, they don't have to necessarily click on the link. 

Wonder if they improve this feature with the new release of 9.12?

That also potentially defeats security around reports. I agree it would be nice, if managed properly. Also, since reporting is going (has gone) to Business Objects, I doubt we'll see any traction on this ER...
