Configuring Schedules

Schedules allow triggering processes at some time by leveraging another object called a calendar. Calendars define which days something can occur. Calendars can be selected days or sequences of dates such as weekly or monthly, they can represent dates like fiscal quarter end, or they can be combined hierarchically. Schedules then associate a time with a calendar. When the day is in the calendar, the time is evaluated. Times can be explicit or repeating (for example, hourly).
