    When I set up a schedule, I can run it every so many days, weeks, hours or minutes but months would be very handy, as would being able to schedule something to run on the first and 15th of the month.

    Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks @JosefFinsel for sharing the feedback.

    In the current version of the server, you are correct that a Managed Schedule can be created to recur after Minutes, Hours, Days, and Weeks. You cannot configure one to run for a specific day of a month. Currently, customers have been using a 4 week recurrence value for their monthly reports.

    With that said, I would like to hear from other customers about the need for a Monthly recurrence level to help with prioritizing this feature with the product team. Please add your comments here if you would like us to add a Monthly recurrence in the Managed Schedules.

    We are tracking this internally as case 173863.

    Bhupesh,

    This feature, along with a few others that we've been trying to resolve over the past year, is a key deterrent for Cube Billing to release ARS into our production environment. As you know, Cube Billing is a SaaS internal/external invoicing and billing system. As such, each of our clients' clients are only invoiced on a monthly basis (never every 4 weeks). In the billing application, our clients have the option to set their recurring invoice on a set day each month (day 1-28, first day, last day). Thus, for scheduling and generating invoices, we need a monthly option.

    Thanks,
    Brent

    Hi Bhupesh,

    Is there any progess on this feature. Some of our clients would like the ability to specify reports either at the start/end of each calendar month.

    Many Thanks,

    Kevin

    Hello Kevin,

    We are sorry but there isn't any update on this issue yet. I have once again pinged the concerned team to get further information on this and will get back to you as soon I hear anything from them.

    Potential new customer and searching for scheduling options, was shocked to find that after 5 years there is no day of month scheduling in ActiveReport Server. That's unfortunately a deal killer for us.

    We must have flexible scheduling for day of month, custom calendars, 3rd monday of the month, 4th friday of the month etc.

    Hello Bill,
