Yes, this is possible. i have this scenario on my job right now.

There are actually three types of Schedules in Cognos. These are:

   1. Run with Option – Single time Scheduling
   2. Recurring Scheduling – U can specify u r date and time here
   3. Job or Batch Scheduling – A Job is a group of reports which can be scheduled at the specific date and time.

You can view the status of report executing in the server by clicking on ‘Schedule Management’ under the tools.

You can follow this step for your guide h2obubbler.
1. In Cognos Connection, Go to Public Folders or My Folders, click the schedule button for the report you want to schedule.
2. Under frequency, select how often you want the schedule to run.
3. Under Start, select the date and time you want the schedule to start.
4. Under End, select the date and time you want to end the schedule.
5. Under Formats, click the format you want to run the output.
6. Under Languages, select the languages to select different languages.
7. Under Delivery, choose any one delivery method.
8. If you want to be prompted, under Prompt values,select the Prompt for Values checkbox.
9. Click Ok.
