Scheduling a Service Provider
The Lobby component has several options for automating service provider tasks at time intervals specified by the System Administrator. To run a task outside of its schedule, click the task name on the Service Provider Configuration dialog box and click the Run Now button.
To Schedule a Service Provider Task:
- Open Suite Manager.
- On the Suite Manager control panel, click the Lobby component in the Tools & Utilities area.
- On the Lobby window, click a service provider, then click Configure.
- On the Schedule tab of the Service Provider Configuration dialog box, click New.
- On the Schedule Information dialog box, type a description for the schedule in the text box.
- Select the appropriate radio option button in the Schedule area. Tasks may be scheduled as follows:
- Daily – Specify the time each day the task should be run and if any days should be skipped in between runs (for example, setting the field to 2 day(s) at 1:00 AM would mean that the task would be run every other day at 1:00 a.m.).
- Weekly – Specify the day(s) of the week on which the task should be run (for example, selecting the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday checkboxes would mean that the task would be run on those days at the time specified).
- Monthly – Specify the day (such as 15 for the 15th of each month) of the month to run the task or specify the time of the month (such as the first Sunday of each month) to run the task at the time specified.
