we are a k12 enviroment. We created some customized report cards by using crystal report.

The report cards have parameters, for example enter the studentID, then it will run and generate the report.

How can we integrate this with email, how to send the reports by email to parents for their kids report?

    Accepted Solution

    You will need another tool to run the report and facilitate the emailing process.
    I think the best tool for you would be Visual CUT by Millet Software.
    You can read up on it here:
    It is very affordable at $300.
    THere are other options as well, some more pricey than others.
    You can check out a list here under Report Managers:

    Agree.  If you have someone who is knowledgeable in programming you could write your own routine but the time and effort would probably be worth more than $300.

    You can export to a file and send an email using Crystal Reports. Have you looked at the export options (the icon with the envelope with the down arrow)?

    If you're looking for more automation, you can try Millet Software as mentioned above.
