The Job Scheduler allows you to create and maintain scheduled jobs for one or a number of terminals. These may recur monthly or daily, or they can run as a one-off task.
To access the Job Scheduler, select the option on the left-hand menu pane.
The Job scheduler displays the terminal each job runs on, the frequency, the type of job and the next time the job will run.
|Note: The Poller still controls scheduled jobs and must be running at all times.|
To add a scheduled job, select Schedule job. The Job scheduler prompts for the configuration.
In this example, the job will download employee details to a terminal. It will run on the 15th day of every month at 9pm. It will remove inactive Employees from the terminal.
Select Download employee details from the Job type drop-down list.
Some Jobs have additional options depending on the Job type. For this job, select Remove employees not in download from unit.
There are four options for the frequency.
All four options also have Next action at date and Next action at time, for setting the date and time to run the job.
The Job scheduler can send a job to all terminals, a group of terminals under a single poller, or a single terminal.
Poller: select one or all Pollers. This is set to All by default.
Terminal: select one Terminal, or all Terminals under the selected Poller. You must select a terminal before submitting a job.
Note: the option to select all Terminals is available for a limited number of Job types, and may not appear depending on the type selected.
Select Submit to save the job and return to the Job scheduler.
The new job appears in the list.
Select a job to view the settings.
To modify a job, change any of the settings and select Submit.
Note: The Job type cannot be changed from here. To add another Job type, schedule a new job.
The Delete scheduled job window appears. Select Delete again to confirm the deletion.
