How Do I Manually Run Scheduled Tasks?

The Process Job application is designed to be run both manually and automatically (for automatic overnight processing). In order to run your Scheduled Jobs manually, simply run the Process Jobs application from the Main Menu.

When the Process Job form opens you select a session. This will default to the afternoon session for the current day. There are three tabs of sessions (Morning, Afternoon and Miscellaneous) with seven sessions in each tab. To run a particular session, select the tab and then the session within the tab.

As each task is processed a green tick will appear in front of it. Details about the task are also placed in the audit file. You should always check the audit file to ensure the success of tasks. This can be done by clicking on the View Audit button. See View Audit for more information.

If you don’t want a task to be run in a particular session, simply click on the task and a red cross will appear. This will stop the task for this session run. If you want the task to be removed permanently, use Scheduled Jobs to remove it from the schedule.

The Process Date, which defaults to today’s date, is used by the system as a starting point. If a process has a parameter of TODAY+1, the system uses the Process Date as TODAY and is thus able to calculate the required date. You should rarely, if ever, change this date.
