Instead of displaying a Crystal Report on screen, ReCrystallize Server can email the Crystal Reports output to one or more recipients.
To email a report add the
parameter to the URL or include it as a field with POSTing a form to ReCrystallize Server’s ViewReport.aspx page. Include an email address as the value for the mailTo parameter. To send the report to multiple recipients, separate each email address with a comma or semicolon.
Use the exportfmt value to specify the report output format. If no exportfmt is specified along with mailTo, PDF will be used as the default.
As with exporting a report, any required Crystal Reports parameter values must be included in the request.
ReCrystallize Server will display a success or failure message after attempting to send email. If the connection to the SMTP server is slow or fails, the web page may appear to hang for up to 15 seconds.
The following email options may be included in the web request. If these values are provided, they will be used instead of the default values configured on the settings page.
