    Summary

    This self-study course will show you how to schedule the distribution of WebFOCUS reports, files, or the contents of a URL, using the WebFOCUS report delivery engine (ReportCaster). You can send the output in a variety of formats via FTP, printer, or email, to a repository or to the Report Library. You will also learn how to configure ReportCaster and enable users to automatically create schedules to distribute output to specified recipients.

    Using a virtual environment that is available for 10 hours over 14 days, and in-session course materials, you will work through hands-on exercises and complete a challenge exercise to test your understanding. A PDF copy of the course manual is included for your reference.
