Function documentationUsing the Scheduler Locate this document in the navigation structure


In the scheduler, you can execute and monitor complex business flows, for example, period-end closing. You can define task lists if you have the corresponding authorization.


  • You can group tasks that are to be executed in the background in a particular order, (and which are controlled by the workflow) into a flow definition.

  • You monitor flows and jobs during and after processing in the monitor.

  • Use the multilevel worklist to improve performance and reduce error processing.


Before using the scheduler, you need to create a task list in which you can later insert the tasks to be scheduled.


This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

The scheduler is divided up into three areas:

  • Task list

    Tasks structured into task groups in chronological order, which are executed periodically, possibly by more than one user to complete a certain process.

  • Monthly overview

    An overview of the current and previous month.

    You can select a day from the monthly overview, which the system then displays in the daily overview in detail.

  • Daily overview

    Overview of the tasks to be done during the day.

    Tasks created in the task list are scheduled in the daily overview. The system displays executed tasks in the daily overview with the time that they started.


Create a task list.

Schedule tasks in the daily overview and if required, have the system execute them.
