Processes in SolveXia can be scheduled to run automatically on a regular basis. This article explains how to set this up using the ‘Run Schedule’ feature. Processes can be scheduled to run hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or on the last day of any month. The user can also specify a date for when the run scheduling should start and a date (or no date) for when it should end. A time limit, after which an automatic run will be cancelled, can also be specified.
