Titan Guide: Export a Salesforce Report to Excel Automatically
How to Automate Reports in Excel with Salesforce
There are two ways in which you can automate Excel reports from Salesforce data. The first option is to use Salesforce’s Scheduled Reports feature, which lets you set a time for Salesforce to create and email reports automatically. If you would like to know how to set this up, please read our Export Salesforce Report to Excel Overview article, where we cover the steps.
Your second option to automate reports in Excel with Salesforce data is to use dedicated automation tools. Many businesses turn to automation tools when they need more flexibility than Salesforce’s Scheduled Reports feature.
Keep in mind that whichever tool you employ to help you automate reporting in Excel will require time and knowledge to use well. Here are a few other points to remember when you choose an automation tool.
