Hi Manoj_g,

one example would be a lookup table that holds information like days, week numbers, and the related email address that should receive the alert. Use that lookup in your search and you should be able to get what you want.

Hope this makes sense ...

cheers, MuS

I have a search with
"index=internal sourcetype=scheduler savedsearchid= * status= skipped | stats count by reason"

And in my lookup file:
temp.csv:
Days email
mon 123@splunk.com
Tue 456@splunk.com
Wed 789@splunk.com
Thu 123@splunk.com
Fri 456@splunk.com
Sat 789@splunk.com
sun 000@splunk.com
Please can you help me with the search where I can send daily by rotation process

Following is an example (untested but you should find working examples on Splunk Answers) of using map command to get email from lookup based on current day and pass on the to the sendmail command.

| inputlookup test.csv where [| makeresults
| fields - _time
| eval Days=strftime(now(),"%a")
| table Days]
| table email
| map search="index=_internal sourcetype=scheduler savedsearch_id= status= skipped | stats count by reason| sendemail to=\"$email$\""

Refer to answer from @woodcock for using map command for sending email with context : https://answers.splunk.com/answers/399434/send-emailed-results-to-an-email-address-in-the-re.html#an...
