Calendar Exclusion for the Scheduler

The scheduler allows a job to be defined with a list of excluded days or times when you do not want the job to run. For example, if you have a report scheduled to run every business day, you want to exclude holidays that change every year. The list for excluded days and times is defined as a calendar, and there are various ways to define the calendar.

The scheduler stores any number of exclusion calendars that you can reference by name. When scheduling a report, reference the name of the calendar to exclude, and the scheduler automatically calculates the correct days to trigger the report. The scheduler also allows you to update an exclusion calendar and update all of the report jobs that used it. Therefore, you can update the calendar of excluded holidays every year and not need to modify any report jobs.
