Create History List Subscriptions

History list subscriptions allow you to have dossiers, documents, and reports to be sent to your History List on a specific schedule. This subscription allows you to keep shortcuts and view the results of scheduled dossiers, documents, or reports and to execute multiple dossiers simultaneously.

Dossier, document, and report results do not remain in the History List indefinitely. The number of results that you can have in the History List and the length of time they remain there are defined by your MicroStrategy administrator.
