To use Crystal Report, you need to buy license for the tool and then you have to learn report development for custom reporting and scheduling. Also to view reports, Line managers need to have BO read only access via Infoview however you can also set up a schedule to the reports.
You can use the Publishing feature too for publishing the reports to different users via email but for that you need to have BO Enterprise installed and then you can schedule the published reports.
For a list of cheap free 3rd-party Crystal Reports schedulers, you can refer to below link:
For scheduling, Groff Automation “http://www.groffautomation.com” has a free scheduler, which can be used to run and send reports by e-mail.
Another free option is the free license from R-Tag and you can get it from this link http://www.r-tag.com/Pages/FreeCrystalReportsViewer.aspx
