Job scheduling helps streamline and consolidate various business and IT processes.
Automation Anywhere screens the complexity of business and IT task scheduling and batch processing. It enables scheduling of tasks across any application. Trigger functionality allows immediate response to specified events and task chaining allows users to schedule multiple tasks. The Automation Anywhere scheduler offers the users a number of scheduling options, as well as a comprehensive reporting feature that gives the user details about the scheduled task like a start time and an end time, email alerts upon completion, logs of any errors while running the task, etc.
