To make sure your daily/weekly/monthly analytics reports are as early as possible after a day or a week or a month is finished, please setup the automatic archiving cron. This script will ensure that all your report data is processed on time and that your scheduled email and SMS reports will be sent when they are due.

Note that if you do not setup this script as we recommend, Matomo (Piwik) will still work and send your scheduled reports. This works as follows: a visitor viewing one of the websites tracked in Matomo will actually trigger the processing of data and sending the email reports. For better reliability though, we highly recommend to setup the automatic archiving cron. This will ensure your reports will be delivered on time and every time.
