Use this page to create a shared schedule to run published reports and subscriptions. Shared schedules can be used in place of report-specific or subscription-specific schedules. Centralized schedule information and the ability to pause and resume scheduled operations are two key features that distinguish shared schedules from item-specific schedules.
Not all frequency combinations can be supported in a single schedule. For example, if you want to run a report at 12:00 P.M. and 4:00 P.M. every Friday, you must create two daily schedules that specify a Friday run date, one with a start time of 12:00 P.M. and another with a start time of 4:00 P.M.
Schedule processing is based on the local time of the report server that hosts and processes the schedule.
To open this page, start SQL Server Management Studio, connect to a report server, right-click Shared Schedule, and select New Schedule. To save the schedule, SQL Server Agent service must be running.
This feature is not available in every edition of SQL Server. For a list of features that are supported by the editions of SQL Server, see Features Supported by the Editions of SQL Server 2012 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=232473).
Type a name for the shared schedule. This name appears in drop-down lists when users select a shared schedule for reports and subscriptions. Be sure to provide a descriptive name that fits easily within a list and that easily distinguishes one shared schedule from another. A name must contain at least one alphanumeric character. It can also include spaces and some symbols. Do not use the following characters when specifying a name:
; ? : @ & = + , $ / * < >

Week (Recurrence Pattern)
Select options to run a scheduled operation in intervals of a week or when the pattern that you want to repeat is based on weeks (for example, to run a report every other week). You can specify a weekly schedule to the day, hour, and minute that you want the schedule to run.
Month (Recurrence Pattern)
Select options to run a scheduled operation in intervals of a month or when the pattern that you want to repeat is based on months. You can specify a monthly schedule to the day, hour, and minute that you want the schedule to run. You can omit specific months from the schedule.
