Learn how to set up automatic reports to get notified whenever a validation run is complete. 

Reports let you set automated email notifications as soon as a validation run is complete. The email contains a summary of the run, the latest Health Score, and the number of errors found.

You can set up reports:

  • for a specific validation rule from the Validation Rule Editor
  • for a specific validation rule from the Validation Rule Panel
  • for all the validation rules in Accutics Validate from the Project Settings

Use case: It normally takes a few seconds for a simple validation rule to run. However, some validations may take much longer depending on the type of validation rule and the amount of data checked.


Reports - Validation Rule Editor

When configuring a validation rule, you can switch to the `Reports´ tab to access reporting settings. 

These settings let you choose who should be receiving an email as soon as the run for that specific validation rule is complete.

Graphical user interface, application, Teams

Description automatically generated

To set up automatic reports:

  1. Choose a user
  2. Choose a frequency (currently, only Instant Reports are available)


Tip: From the meatball menu (…) on the right side of the users, you can also access the reports settings page. Here, you can enable/disable receiving reports. 

Reports - Validation Rule Panel

To set up reports for a specific validation rule from its panel, simply navigate to a source, then:

Click on a validation rule > Switch to the `Reports´ tab > Toggle on ` Receive Instant Reports´.

Please note that this will only apply to yourself. To choose a recipient other than you, please access the reporting settings from the configuration of the validation page (see point above).

Reports - Project Settings

If you do not wish receive any report in Accutics Validate, you should access the Project Settings.

From the side navigation bar:

Click on `Settings´ > `Reports´ > Toggle off ` Receive Instant Reports´.

Toggle on and off corresponds to enabling or disabling to receive email reports. You can think of it as subscribe and unsubscribe to a newsletter. 

Use case: When needing a period of focus or being on holiday, you may want to disable all email reports for the project for a short period of time. Instead of disabling reporting for each individual validation rule, you can simply toggle off `Receive Instant Reports´ and then, toggle it on once you are ready again.
