It would be nice if there was an option to set the output filename when using publishing lists in report builder.  The example I have come across is I have 90 versions of the same shelled report (The RSID is variable and is overridden in report builder), though publishing lists allow me to distribute specific RSIDs to specific users I still need the ability to post these in central repository and archive them in a network drive.  I can add myself onto the distribution of each version of the report, however this leaves me receiving 90 files with the same name and a lot of manual work to identify which report belongs to which user.  I side note, each report is specific to that user and cannot and the information is private to that user.

 

Example:

 

RSID                         Recipient                                                     Filename

John                           john.smith@gmail.com                           John.xlsx

Tom                            tom.smith@gmail.com                             Tom.xlsx

 

That or Adobe could increase the number of scheduled reports allowed per login Smiley Happy

Great idea, this idea is something we are considering for ARB 5.0, along with dynamic date functions being integrated into the filename.
