Expiry

Many frequencies include the Expiry option. Use this option to expire the schedule after a set period (hours). This option is commonly used to expire a schedule that uses Event where the event is not set within (n) hours.


Expiry Notification

An expired Schedule will automatically generate a notification email to any users in the SUPPORT group. This feature requires a Group named support containing one or more users.



Priority


The Priority range is based on the group priority of the schedule owner. See Schedule Priority for details.



Schedule Options


Select the Schedule tab to view Schedule options.


Run As


Optionally run the Schedule as another user. The designated user's Platform Credentials will be used for all refreshes and deliveries. Run As available only for Administrator users.


Will Run On


Select a date then the Check button to check if the schedule will run on the selected date.


Priority Queue


Select this option to add the Schedule to the Priority queue. InfoBurst provides a queue separate from standard Platform document queues. Bursts/XDCs in a Schedule which is added to the Priority Queue will run regardless of existing queue status. Default Priority Queue length is 5. Please consult your InfoBurst administrator before using this feature as improper use may impact reporting platform performance.
