Once created, you will have options to:

-Edit specific configurations

-Run a configuration immediately

When an automatic export returns an error under the Last Run Status, first ensure that the transmission settings are correct by clicking on the pencil icon next to the export in question. If the information is correct, try running the export again by clicking on the circle icon pointing counterclockwise , then click on the Run icon .  If an error occurs again, contact the Simplicity Help Desk.
