Setting Up the Job Scheduler

You can use the job scheduler to run jobs automatically at user-defined intervals. For the job you want the scheduler to run, you must specify which object (report, dataport, or codeunit) carries out the job, and when you want to run it.

To Set Up the Job Scheduler:

  1. Open the Job Scheduler Setup window.

  2. Press F3 to set up a job.

  3. On the General tab, fill in the ID and Description fields.

  4. Enter a check mark in the Enabled field, if you want the job scheduler to run this specific job.

  5. Fill in the Unit of Measure and Time Between Check fields.

  6. On the Object Setup tab, fill in the Object Type and Object No. fields.

  7. On the Scheduling Details tab, enter how errors should be handled by the job scheduler, and the days and time the job should be run.

For Help about a specific field, click the field and press F1.

Repeat steps 2 to 7 to set up as many jobs as you want.


If in the process of running a job a message appears asking you to perform a certain action, for example, to click OK, to make a choice, and so on, the job scheduler will not continue running until the required action is performed.
