A new delivery output will be added under the Delivery tab. Each time you press the “Run with outputs” button, Analytics Canvas will request your approval to send Emails. You can also send Emails by clicking the “Send emails” button located in the upper right corner of the screen. Emails can only be sent after all output files have been created.

The email feature gives you an added level of comfort while working with report automation.
