Some reports may need to be run multiple times each day. Prior to this release, a separate deferred process had to be created for each time during the day that the report needed to be run. This new feature allows for running a deferred report multiple times per day, at specified intervals within a specified time frame, all in one deferred process:
In the example above, the report will be run every 15 minutes between 7:00am and 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.
You can specify minutes between running as low as 1 and as high as several hours (e.g., 120 is 2 hours).
Military times are specified, between 00:00 and 23:59. The stop time must be greater than the start time. If, for example, you want to schedule a report between 4:00pm and 2:00am the next morning, you need to set up two of these daily deferred processes, one repeating between 16:00 and 23:59 and one between 00:00 and 02:00.
If the report is generated many times per day, you may wish to consider modifying EL800U.CFG to separate these reports from others. See the Knowledge Base article titled Feature - Automatic Archiving of Spooled Reports in Elliott v8.0.
