Scheduled Query Result Notification

When you schedule a query, you will be notified by email when the query starts to run and when your results are ready. Follow the link in your email to view the Catalog page with your query results.

Like any query you run in Alation, a part of your results from your saved query are cached. Alation caches up to 16mb of your query results. When you use the Schedule feature, your query will run and you will be able to access those results. If your result set is larger than 16mb, you will need to use Export to ensure your entire result set will be run in Alation and exported in CSV or TSV. However, exports cannot be scheduled because computers don’t support offline downloads.

To learn more about how your results are treated, read this article on cached query results.
