Setting Output Options

On the Output Options tab, you can change these settings:

File name – The base name for the output file in the repository. This name must be unique; if you attempt to create a schedule with the same file name as an existing schedule, you will not be able to save.
Description – The optional description of the file that appears to users who view the repository.
Time Zone– The output time zone for generating the report.
Output Locale – The locale settings for generating the report.

The report must support locales, for example a report based on a Domain with language bundles (see Security and Locale Information for a Domain).

Formats – The available output formats. Select one or more formats; the default format is PDF. When you select more than one, each format is stored as a separate file in the selected output destination.
File Handling – Select one or more checkboxes to specify handling for multiple output files with the same name:
     Overwrite Files – Overwrites old output files with newer one of the same name.
     Sequential File Names by Timestamp – Appends a timestamp to the names of files created by the job. Useful for the output of recurring jobs or for time-sensitive reports where the output must be dated. When the timestamp is used, the output filename is <basename>-<timestamp>.<extension>. Note that, depending on the frequency of the schedule and the format of the timestamp, it may be possible to have two output files with the same name; in this case, modify the timestamp or use the Overwrite Files checkbox to specify the behavior you want.
     Timestamp Pattern – When Sequential File Names by Timestamp is selected, a required pattern for the timestamp, based on the java.text.SimpleDateFormat is required. Valid patterns for report output files can only contain letters, numbers, dashes, underscores, and periods. The default pattern is yyyyMMddHHmm, for example 200906150601.
