How to schedule jobs?

  • Article Type: Q&A
  • Product: Alma


We heard that we can schedule a job, however, it looks like "as soon as possible" is the only option. Why? Is there any documentation on this?


There are two types of jobs in Alma:

1. Jobs that are scheduled and run automatically by Alma, over which users have no control.
2. Jobs that users can control; some have multiple scheduling options. For example: configuring external systems exports/imports, publishing to Primo or OCLC, courtesy notices, etc.

Additional Information

Refer to the the Online Help and the Administration Guide, under: "Overview of Jobs", in order to review scheduling options.
