Editing Global Schedules

To modify a global schedule:

  1. In the menu, click Administration > Schedules . The Schedules page displays, listing all existing global schedules.
  2. Click the name of the schedule you want to edit. The Configure Schedule page displays.
  3. Change the name of the schedule in the Name field. It is good practice to include the time zone in the name, for example "Daily at 6 PM EST", so that users know when it actually runs.
  4. Change the description of the schedule in the Description field.
  5. Click Edit next to From to define a new start date and time for the schedule. All date and time values are saved in GMT to the database. The presentation of values is set based on the Time zone setting specified in the user settings. For example, if an administrator who is located in New York creates a global schedule that runs every day at 6 PM, it runs at midnight for a user located in Paris, who applies this schedule to his execution plan.
  6. Change the Interval at which an execution should repeat. The available time range is from 1 minute to 36 days.
  7. Check the Adjust schedule to daylight savings check box to have scheduled executions automatically adjust to daylight-saving time changes.
  8. Click Edit next to run to define the date and time at which execution should end. Click Forever to execute for an undefined time period, or until to execute for a defined period.
  9. To define weekdays and time-of-day intervals at which the test should not execute, click Add Exclusion. For additional information, see Scheduling Exclusions.
  10. To define a point in time when the test must execute, click Add Definite Run. For additional information, see Scheduling Definite Runs.
  11. Click Save when you have finished modifying the schedule.
