Salesforce Tips: Schedule Apex Job

In this blog, we will explain on another method to execute the job at a specific time which is not achievable with a trigger.

With the assumption that an Apex Schedulable class has been created, the user can utilise the Schedule Apex feature to set up a time for the job execution. This feature is available via Home > App Setup > Develop > Apex Classes > Schedule Apex. From the interface:

  • provide the job name
  • select the schedulable class that has been created
  • set the configuration according to user preference



Once the scheduled job has been added, the user can continue to monitor the job execution status via Home > Administration Setup > Monitoring > Scheduled Jobs.
