Body contains one or more rows, each of which contains a block with extracted and processed data about your store's work.

Each row has the following parameters:

  • Block - is the name of real Report or Dashboard block, which contains collected data.
  • Date Interval - you can use this field to override default block data range, and force collect data for certain period. Leave empty, if you need to insert report or block as is.
  • Rows limit - limit of records, processed while collecting data. Used primarily to resolve performance issue (too much data to process can make email sending stuck). Leave empty to process all data.

Body can contain any number of Reports or Dashboard blocks, therefore, you can automate your reporting even in single email.
