Setting Up HTML Scroll Exports
1). Create The File
There are two steps in setting up HTML Scroll Auto-Saves.
First you must create the HTML file that you will be auto-saving to, then you must set up an auto-save that points to the file that you’ve created.
Go to Reports > Export > HTML Scroll
After selecting Export > HTML Scroll, you can customize the scroll speed and font size. You can also change this later in the Auto-Save configuration.
Click Save Settings and select the folder that you would like the file to be saved to.
If you are planning on using this on another computer, save to Dropbox or other cloud syncing software.
2). Set up an Auto-Save to that File
Now that you have a file ready you can create a File Auto-Save that points to that file.
To get started, find the report you want to set up an Auto-Save for, and select Auto-Save Settings.

Once you have added an HTML Auto-Save, you will need to configure it.
