The Scheduled tab of the Monitor Jobs page (Admin > Manage Jobs and Sets > Monitor Jobs) lists scheduled jobs.
Monitor Jobs Page – Scheduled Tab
You can filter the list by job category. Each job in the list includes the following information:
|Active||Whether the job is active or inactive. Jobs can be activated/deactivated by Ex Libris staff only (although some jobs can be scheduled by library staff).|
|Name||The job name.|
|Job Category||A job category.|
|Creator||The user who scheduled the job. Jobs scheduled by Esploro are indicated with a hyphen (-).|
|Schedule||How often and when the job is scheduled to run (for example, every day at X time).|
|Next Run||The date and time of the next run of this job.
The time is set according to the time zone of the data center that is closest to your institution.
Scheduled jobs run as close as possible to their scheduled time. Some jobs can run in parallel, but part or all of a job may wait until a server has available resources.
For each job, you can:
- Configure email notifications that are sent after the job runs (Email Notifications). For more information, see Configuring Email Notifications for Scheduled Jobs.
- View completed runs of the job (Job History). For more information, see Viewing Completed Jobs.
A Run Now option is available only on sandbox environments.
The following table describes the jobs that commonly appear in this tab. The User column indicates if you can (partially or fully) control the job’s schedule; see the Description column for a link to the section that discusses scheduling the job.
|No||Analytics||Processes all scheduled reports and dashboards, and distributes them to their subscribed users. See Running Analytics Reports and Displaying Them in Alma.

Calculates the following:
To configure email notifications for scheduled jobs, you must have the following role:
- General System Administrator
You can configure the email notifications that are sent after a scheduled job runs. You can configure notifications to be sent to Esploro users and/or manually entered email addresses.
To configure email notifications for scheduled jobs:
- On the Monitor Jobs page (Admin > Manage Jobs > Monitor Jobs), select Email Notifications in the row actions list on the Scheduled tab for the job whose email notification you want to configure. The Email Notifications for Scheduled Jobs page appears.
- Select Add User to configure email notifications to be sent to users. The following pane appears.
- In the User text box, enter or select the Esploro user to whom you want email notifications sent.
- Select Send on success to have an email notification sent when the job completes successfully and select Send on error to have an email notification sent when the job does not complete successfully.
Successful completion of a job does not mean that the job did not produce errors. Rather, it means that the job completed with the status of Completed Successfully (as shown in History tab of the Monitor Jobs page).
- Select Add and Close.
- Select Add Email Address to configure email notifications to be sent to any email address (follow the steps described above).
- After you have completed configuring the email notification recipients, select Save.
When a job completes, all subscribers receive an email notification for the job. The email that is sent is the System Job Letter; see Letter Types.
To view an overview of the status of the last few days of scheduled jobs, enable the Scheduled Job Status dashboard widget. For information about adding this widget, see Managing Widgets.
All roles can add the widget to their homepage. However, they will only see information about scheduled jobs that are relevant to their role. The list includes MD import jobs and publishing jobs such as jobs that publish to Primo or Google Scholar. Note that for imports, manually-run import jobs are not considered in the summaries (as is the case for the other lines in the widget).
To open a pop-up with the names of any failed jobs, select an error icon .
