Usually reports are mailed out to marketing managers or directors to measure any change in progress from week-to-week. With Google Analytics, you can make the process completely automated -- you can schedule your reports to be emailed daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly. To start emailing your reports in PDF, CSV, XML, and TSV format, just click the 'Email' icon above all your reports:

This Help Center article has comprehensive instructions on how to schedule your reports or email them on the fly.

If after scheduling reports you want to delete them, you can do so at any time by going to the 'Manage Scheduled Emails' dashboard. This may be a little hard to find since you have to click a separate 'Email' icon in the reports page.

To delete a scheduled email, please follow these steps:

1. Find the other 'Email' icon on the left hand side of the reports page. Look at the image below to get an idea of where it's located.

2. After clicking the icon, you should see a list of scheduled reports. Click the icon that looks like a trash can in the upper right hand corner to delete them forever.

Hopefully after reading this post, you've automated sending out reports and have one less thing to worry about on Mondays!
