Embed report links in email automations

While we can easily send reports via email in an automation using the email system activity, I would rather send a link to the file to all our users. Can this be done within the system, if not, is this something that will become available?

Hi, I'd like to understand it more. Where do you want to host the file? What message would you like to send to the people? Would you like Toad to generate a link every time or just tell the recipients when it is ready at the location?

If the reports will be served at a consistent reachable file location (assuming folks have proper drive assignments, etc.), then it's possible to embed a URI in the body of your e-mail... e.g. something like

file:///X:/ReportOutput/myFirstReport.PDF

as a simple example, where X: is a reachable, attached drive location.
