Configure a Delivery

Delivery Conditions


Control if content is delivered based on one or more conditions. Content will not be delivered when the condition is false. A Delivery can have multiple conditions.


Report Data (Recommended)


Set the Delivery Condition based on data within the document. For example, a document contains variable Revenue. Delivery should only occur if Revenue exceeds $5000. Set a data delivery condition accordingly. See Suppress Delivery of Empty Reports for more detail.


Requirements


InfoBurst uses Excel internally to evaluate the data condition. Please review the following requirements and recommendations before using this Delivery Condition type:

  • Publish the document in Excel format (one time only) to identify the target worksheet and cell
  • Data cell should be re-evaluated and condition updated if format changes and affects target cell location
  • Burst item does not require an Excel Delivery for this purpose
  • WebI Recommendation: Mirror target field on dedicated report tab where formatting will not change


Add a Delivery Condition

  • Condition Type: Report Data
  • Worksheet: Enter the worksheet name
  • Cell: Enter the target cell
  • Condition: Enter a OPERATOR + VALUE (e.g. >5000)

No Delivery Email Notification


When Destination is Email, it is possible to send an email notification to recipients when the Delivery Condition is false. Configure the Delivery Condition then select Destination and add a message in Message (If No Delivery). Custom subject can be configured in Burst Item Settings using Email Subject (If No Delivery).


Document Context 


Set the Delivery Condition based on value(s) for which a document is refreshed (burst). For example, a document is burst for cities New York and London. Only the New York report should be sent to email recipients. Condition for the email delivery is State=New York. Only the London report should be sent to SharePoint. Condition for the SharePoint delivery is State=London.
