Hi christantoy

the easiest way is to create a search that suits your needs, save it. Then in Manager » Searches and reports click your saved search and schedule it, enable summary indexing and your done with your first summary index.

Remember that the summary index only contains the data it gets through your saved search, meaning you can only that data in your summary index and nothing else.

hope this helps to get you started....

cheers,

this to limit the search in time, meaning start searching 26 hours ago and stop 2 hours ago from that time when the search started. the cron like stuff would be if you schedule your search
