Event Scheduler

Description #

Scheduling specific workflows can be a useful organization tool, so PlaidCloud provides the ability to do just that. Using event scheduler, you can schedule a workflow to run by month, day, hour, minute, or even on a financial workday schedule. If using the financial workday schedule approach, PlaidCloud also allows configuration of holiday schedules using various holiday calendars.

The Events Table will indicate whether the event is scheduled by month, day, hour and minute, or workday under the event description column.

To view events:

  1. Open Analyze
  2. Select “Tools”
  3. Click “Event Scheduler”

This will open the Events Table showing all the current events configured for the workspace.

Note: If the event is active, the “Active” icon will be displayed. active event icon
