How Do I Schedule a Job?

Once you have created a job, you can schedule it to run periodically.

To schedule a job:

  1. Select the desired GOexchange server in the Server List.

  2. Bring up the Server menu for the selected server.

  3. Select New Maintenance -> Schedule Item....  The New-Schedule dialog appears.

  4. Give a description in the Name field.  We recommend a description that defines the scope of the schedule item; for example: "Monthly Sales Maintenance".

  5. In the Jobs drop-down, select the job to which you want to apply this schedule.

  7. Adjust the Frequency with which you want the job to run.  You can schedule a job to run once, or set a schedule that recurs on a daily, weekly, monthly, or annual basis.
