Tip: You can include yourself as a recipient if you want a copy of what is sent to other recipients. The link generates live data so it's possible results will vary if run at different times. If the report is deleted then the sharing link will no longer work and the recipient will no longer be able to access it. To send the report as an attachment based on a schedule, take a look at Schedule an existing report.
