From here, you can view completed as well as pending reports:

Clicking the “Schedule Report” button allows you to schedule a report to be emailed out:

You can specify a report as well as multiple recipients. You also specify the frequency of the report. In addition to the attached report, the email to the recipient will also contain information about the report being sent:

NOTE: With this new release, if the report is empty, an email will NOT be sent to the recipient. However, you can use the “Notify when complete” section, to receive an email notification even when the report is empty. Here’s what the notification email looks like:
