    Hi Johan,

    There is an option in CMC to enable emails for usage statement. When this option is enabled (EP app -> settings -> Usage Statement email), a credit usage statement for the pool will be sent to the listed emails monthly. The credit usage statement will be sent on the first day of each month and will contain the credit usage for the previous month. You can add or remove email addresses from this list at any time. Multiple email addresses must be comma separated. Does this option address the requirement or is there additional information that is needed in the monthly usage statement email?

    Hi Johan,

    Capability is added in EP2.0 app in CMC to schedule email of the usage statement. You can enable the option to send a monthly credit usage statement for the pool to the listed email addresses. The credit usage statement is sent on the first day of each month and contains the credit usage for the previous month. Please let us know if this addresses your requirement.
