Need to determine which user subscribed another user to a report.

I really hope this is something simple and I'm just overlooking it.

I have a user who currently is included along with a dozen others in a daily report notification.  However this user is not actually "subscribed" to any reports.  I am aware that in lightening you can run a report, subscribe, and then select other users to receive the email of the report at designated times.  DESPITE this screen saying this other person you select is "Subscribed", technically that person does not show up on their own reports section as being subscribed to anything.

Normally in order to remove this individual, I'd have the user who added them to the report, edit the subscribe screen and remove them.  However I have been through every single person who receives the report email, logged in as them, and NONE of them have subscribed to the email nor show that they have subscribed others.

So I am at a loss as to how to remove this one user from the list of recipients for this report subscription.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Keith - are you sure your report is going directly to the users, and not to a distribution group email address?
You could check the Email Log (Setup ->Email Log Files) for the time the report is sent to confirm which address it is going to.

You could also check the report itself, by opening it up and clicking the "Schedule Future Runs" to see if it is a scheduled report going out.
Open the report, click the drop down beside the "Run Report" button and select "Schedule Future Runs".
That will show you if it is a scheduled report that is sent out regularly, and who it is set to go.

"Schedule Future Runs" is it!  I KNEW I had seen that before but I just could not for the life of me remember where.  Every article I could find online said ZERO about this.  But yes, this is where the user is set to be included in the distribution.  Thanks very much!  I've literally been looking into this for like 5 hours now.  I feel like an idiot.

Hey, don't worry!  The reason I knew where to look is because I had to the same excercise once.  I'm certain it was more than 5 hours for me haha.
