Email Reports

I don’t believe this currently exists in Mautic (correct me if I’m wrong and there is a way to do this), but I’d love to see the option to send out periodic email reports to users showing the number of visits and recently created contacts, etc. Piwik does something similar to this (http://piwik.org/docs/email-reports). What do you think?



In the absence of this feature, I was just going to create a PHP script that pulls data from the API into an email and schedule them to go out using cron. I will share this once I’ve created it.



Thanks!

That’s a great idea! Don’t you think it’s worth to build rather a Mautic plugin which could do that instead of a single PHP script?

Definitely! Good call. I will have to learn more about how plugins work.

I would really love this feature. Is there any progress with developing it?

@nickt Any luck with this in the end? I would love to try your solution out if you’re willing to share with the class :slight_smile:

I personally find the reports quite cumbersome, I believe the most common and actionable reports should all be visible by simply going to either the email itself or by going to reports and say selecting emails and then the email that was sent and hey presto you get shown the stats without the need to generate anything, the generation of reports should be an advanced feature.

I have a client looking for a report to be emailed at the end of each month so will need to develop this functionality myself by the looks of it, unless something now exists?
