What time of day are report subscriptions emailed?
A specific report subscription is always emailed at the same time of day (or time of week). However, this time is chosen at random when the report subscription is created.
Currently, the time is randomly chosen in the range from 08:00 to 15:00 UTC time. Depending on daylight savings, this translates into:
Eastern Time: 3AM to 11AM
Pacific Time: 12AM to 8AM
If you are unhappy with the specific time the e-mails are sent, you can delete the report subscription and recreate it. This will choose a new random time which may be more (or less) to your liking.
[Note that the specific time ranges may change in the future.]
Caution: If the subscribed report has a filter criterion that selects records related to the date Today(), the report would not show records related to 'yesterday' as might have been expected since the report would have been run only in the morning hours of Today(). The workaround is to use Today() - Days(1) instead of Today() in the filter formula if the intent is to select records related to the day 'previously ended'.
