A schedule object (schedule) specifies when and how many times a job is run. Schedules can be shared by multiple jobs. For example, the end of a business quarter may be a common time frame for many jobs. Instead having to define an end-of-quarter schedule each time a new job is defined, job creators can point to a named schedule.

There are two types of schedules: time schedules and event schedules.

With time schedules, jobs can be scheduled to run at a later time or immediately. Time schedules include a start date and time, optional end date and time, and optional repeat interval.

With event schedules, you can specify that a job be executed when a certain event occurs, such as the arrival of a file on a system. For more information on events, see "Using Events".

See "Creating Schedules" for more information.
