Create or Modify a Schedule

The Schedules page shows a list of schedules, including their name, type, what they’re for (scope), number of tasks, behavior (concurrent or serial processing), and when they are scheduled to run.

Note: If you enable custom schedules for subscriptions on one or more sites, users will control schedules for their subscriptions on those sites. To learn more, see Enable Custom Schedules for Subscriptions.

To create a new schedule

  1. In a site, click Schedules.

  2. Click New Schedule.

  3. Specify a descriptive Name for the schedule. For example, End of week.

  4. Select a Task type the schedule will handle—refreshing extracts, running flows, or delivering subscriptions.

  5. Optionally you can define a Default priority from 1 to 100, where 1 is the highest priority. This is the priority that will be assigned to the tasks by default. If two tasks are pending in the queue, the one with the higher priority runs first.

  6. Execution: choose whether a schedule will run in parallel or serially. Schedules that run in parallel run on all available backgrounder processes so that they can complete faster.

    Note: Schedules for the same workbook will always run serially, even if you set this option to parallel.

  7. Finish defining the schedule. You can define an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly schedule.

  8. Click Create.
