Generating Empty Dataset Reports (when there is No Data)

By default, Reports containing no data are not included in Bursts and Digests. Sometimes,  especially when you are reporting changes or defects in data, you will want to display report that contains no data.

If you like, Metric Insights can generate an empty report in these circumstances. This article explains how to do this.

If "Include Empty Report in Distribution" = yes then an empty Report can be sent via:

  • Burst to email
  • Burst to chat apps (Slack/Teams)
  • Favorites Digest
  • Share Now

Access Dataset Report Editor > Distribution tab

Report Editor - Google Chrome

Note: The following are exceptions for sending empty Reports:

  • Options "Shared Drive" and "FTP" are not supported for sending empty Reports
  • Requested attachments will not be sent with empty Reports
