Should accelerated reports always be scheduled?

Path Finder

I have created an accelerated report with a summary range of 1 day. Should i also schedule this report with the cron schedule to run lets say hourly?

If accelerated report is not scheduled, how splunk is going to build summary in this case?

Report Acceleration need not be scheduled (looks like splunk internally manages this scheduling part).

Thank you for your answer. Do you know how splunk builds the summary when the report is unscheduled? Does it run a job lets say every 5 min?

How Splunk Enterprise builds report acceleration summaries
When you enable acceleration for an eligible report and Splunk Enterprise determines that it will build a summary for the report, it begins running the report to populate the summary with data. When the summary is complete, Splunk Enterprise continues running the report on a 10 minute interval to keep the summary up to date. Each update ensures that the entire configured time range is covered without a significant gap in data. This method of summary building also ensures that late-arriving data will be summarized without complication.
