In this document we will explain how to Save reports in a custom folder path.

This Use Case can be useful for Admins who are required to generate some reports for the management, where the report has to be located in a Specific location chosen and accessible by the Management. 

If the ‘Custom path and filename’ ends with ‘ / ‘ at the end of the path, this becomes the location of the report. If the ‘Custom path and filename’  ends without ‘ / ‘ at the end of the path, the last word becomes the name of the Report and it is located in the Folders before the last ‘/ ‘ forward slash button. 

dir/dir2/filename and filename is overwritten,

dir/dir2/dir3/ and filename will be default in those directories.

In the example below we want to create a custom path of the report to specific location chosen by the recipient or the manager who requires the report.

The Report name will be: ‘Emails received in the last day’ and the location of this report will be ‘Financial report’ in MyDrive of the recipient. The custom path and filename is: ‘Financial report/’ with the ‘/’ at the end.
