How do I set a "Trigger Condition" on a Splunk report like you would  when creating an alert?

My issue is that I have created a report that I want to generate an email from when Number of Results = 0 ie, when no file has been uploaded/detected.

Some people would argue why don't I just create an alert instead? My dilemma is, with an alert it won’t let you add a "Time Range" as I want my daily report to track the previous 7 day time range 

My search string looks like this:

index=it_sts_xfer_prod_us xferPath="*GIDM*" OR xferPath="*sailpnt*" OR xferPath="*identity*" OR xferPath="*InternalAudit*" xferFile="FILENAME.csv" | eval _time=_time-xferSecs | convert ctime(_time) as Time timeformat=%m/%d/%y

Reports don't have triggers.  They always send their results.

Alerts have triggers.  They also have time ranges.
