The first step in setting up reporting in BizTalk360 is to create Reporting Schedules. You can relate Reporting Schedules similar to creating alarms.

The Reporting Schedules functionality helps you to have BizTalk360 create a specific report at a specific time. Say, you can configure reports to be generated every day at 9 AM or on the 15th of every month at 6 PM. Also, you can define the email id of the person who should receive the reports.
