send scheduled reports only if the view contains data

Hi,
We have the following enhancement request regarding scheduled reports.

Add an option to scheduled reports to send the report only if the report contains data.
If the View/Tql does not contain CIs -> the Report should not be send.
The enhancement is for the ucmdb-browser as well as the UCMDB-UI
A simple checkbox should be fine for this.

Our use-case is based on Data-Quality-Reports, for instance we have views that shows us possible wrong CIs like:
-"Windows or Unix without relation to IPAddress"
-"Windows without S/N"
-"Duplicate CIs"
....
Normally these Reports are empty and we want to get notified via mail only if the Report contains CIs.

Regards,

Thomas
