Schedule a Task

If you have a created a task and you want it to run more than once on a set schedule, you can set it up to repeat the run on prescribed settings. Tasks are always scheduled based on the server's local timezone.

When Workflow is running a task, it uses default log locations and working data directories to store the files as they are built. If you need to change the directories, refer to Task Configuration for instructions.

  5. In the Task field, select the task that you are scheduling to repeat. The task must already be created before you can schedule it.
