Share Raw Data Across Teams with Scheduled Data Exports

If you’re building a data-driven culture or already are data-driven (hi-five!), you’re probably looking at the same reports frequently. In order to help you save time and easily share more data with your team, we’re announcing the ability to schedule a raw data export so you and your team can share the data via email.

Scheduling exports is easy. Simply run your report, save your report, and click the Schedule button:

You’ll be able to take your favorite report (currently available for Funnel, People, Cohort, and Revenue Reports) and schedule it to send weekly or monthly. Schedule as many to your heart’s content!

The great thing is that you can automate emails to send data to yourself, your team, or even people outside of your company so that everyone can get a pulse on marketing performance.

If you have specific data that your team needs without logging into Kissmetrics, you can now automate the delivery of that data so you don’t have to manually login, download the data, and email it to them. Just schedule your report to send to them and get on with your day.

Say you have a new executive at your company and you want to add them to multiple reports. You can view and edit all of your scheduled reports in the management area, and add their email to each report.

Does your team prefer communicating over Slack? Well, you can schedule a report to notify Slack channels. Let’s say your marketing team wants to see campaign data or conversion rates for your marketing site – you can schedule a Slack notification with the Funnel Report to the team channel and avoid flooding inboxes.

We hope Scheduled Data Exports helps you save time so that you can spend more time creating campaigns and growing your customer base.

    I think this is a brilliant idea. I’m in charge of analytics at my company and KISSmetrics is my favourite tool but I’m having a hard time getting other people to look at the data even when they admit that looking at the data has been useful in the past. They just forget. I don’t blame them, we are very busy.

    I saw this email reports feature and I got very excited, but when I shared it with the team, they shot the idea down immediately. We been having a less-email drive because things were out of control. We are using more Slack, Trello and trying to keep our inboxes less cluttered.

    Do you know of any app that can sort of commandeer the screen when people go away from the computer and show KISSmetrics, so that when they come back to their computers at least they get a glimpse of the data. I been going around the office sneakily opening a Chrome window and loading KISSmetrics when people walk away, and it was fun (yeah, it turned into a sort of prank by now) but I have work to do, I can’t keep on doing this all day.

    • Thanks for this comment, Chris!

      I’m not aware of any app that shows Kissmetrics outside of the app yet, but this blog post does mention how to email the reports into a Slack channel so that it’s out of people’s inboxes. You can then download and view the data via Slack.

      We’re working on more ways to share reports visually so stay tuned for more.

      • Hi, I have the same issue that Chris, I spend tons of time browsing for an app and still doesn´t exist. I also saw that you can deliver the data to a slack channel, but it doesnt explain so mucho how to…do you have any more info?

        Thanks!
