Keep your workflows on track
Automation on your schedule
Do you need to run a process on a recurring schedule? Perhaps you need to update an HR feed once a week or sync data between multiple systems a few times a day?
Whatever the case may be – the new Workflow Scheduler has you covered! With Workflow Scheduler, you can arrange your processes around your unique needs.
In the past, the primary solution to accomplish running workflows on a schedule was to use timer or scheduler action in a system workflow. While that concept is still good and valid, Workflow Scheduler gives you a simple approach to schedule when and how workflows run, and also easily adjust the schedule as your business needs change.
Tasks are simple to create and edit. To create a new one, click the New Task button on the upper right. To edit an existing task, simply click on the corresponding row. You’ll be presented with the screen below.
A few basic properties to note include:
Schedule Mode and Interval – there are 3 to select from…
- Interval: indicates the task will be ran at some fixed interval (in seconds)
- Hourly: allows for scheduling of the task to be ran on one or more minutes each hour
- Daily: allows for hours of each day the schedule should run
Enabled – determines whether the task is enabled or not
Workflow – the workflow to run
