Scheduled Exports in Rival IQ Make Reporting Easy

Rival IQ News & Events

Scheduled Reports Launch

Summer has been a very productive time for the Rival IQ team, and we’re keeping that energy rolling by launching Scheduled Exports, a set of time-saving, insight-delivering features that will make you even more efficient and market aware than you already are.

As busy marketers ourselves, we know how hard it can be to keep up with the broad range of tasks required to reach current and potential customers with relevant, helpful information. With all of this work to do, it is hard to imagine making reporting and data analysis part of a routine. Yet, the awareness that comes from being really in touch with our key marketing and competitive insights really does make us more efficient and effective marketers.

Wouldn’t it be nice to get exactly the reporting you need, when you need it, where you need it? Well, we just made your life a whole lot easier!

What Are Scheduled Exports?

With Scheduled Exports, you can schedule the email delivery of any chart, panel, page, or report in Rival IQ. In other words, if you see an Export button today, there is now a Schedule option that will let you schedule the periodic export and delivery of this report.

There is a lot of flexibility to the schedules you can create, both with regards to frequency, reporting period, file formats, and delivery options.

Reports can be:

Start Scheduling Exports

To get started with scheduling an export, just look for the Export button on any report in Rival IQ. You’ll notice that the options available have increased, and that “Schedule” is now available. Click the schedule option to configure your export.

Scheduled Reports Export Drop Down

After choosing Schedule, the export scheduler will appear, and you can configure things. You’ll have the ability to choose or update the title, delivery frequency, reporting period, file format, and email delivery list.

Once you’ve scheduled your exports, you can visit your Scheduled Exports page to view what you have scheduled, edit existing schedules, and re-download historical exports.

Export Ideas to Make You A Super-Aware Marketer

Perhaps you already have tons of ideas of exports you’d like to schedule, but in case you don’t, here are a couple of ideas for things we’ve been loving for the last few weeks.

Daily Exports

For daily reports, PNG exports are a great way to get a concise insight delivered directly to your inbox. Since PNG images are embedded directly in your email, there’s nothing to download and you don’t even need to be logged into Rival IQ to get your data goodness.

Weekly Exports

Complete, weekly reports are probably too frequent for most companies or clients, but a few key reports to your inbox make it easy to keep your finger on the pulse of your landscape.

Monthly Exports

Once a month is a good frequency for diving deeper on all of your marketing metrics.
