Recurring Exports Tab

If you have to export a calendar periodically, Recurrent Export is of big help. In recurring export tab, you can configure pre-scheduled recurring calendar exports using a pre-defined template.

You will need to enable Offline access before you can use this feature. As this feature needs to access your calendar data when you are not using the application.

As an example, if you need to perform export every Monday for the previous week, you can schedule a recurring export to do the job for you even when you are sleeping :). Exported reports are automatically emailed to the user.
