Highlight the report you want to run or schedule to run & then hit 'Set up & Schedule' at the bottom.  I think they are primarily set up already to run what they say they are running - but you may have to change some fields.


From 'Set up & Schedule' - you can either hit 'Schedule' or 'Run Now'.

If you schedule it - you can specify how often you want it to run and then click the 'email to' box to have the results sent to you and anyone else you think might want to see it.
