Editing an Activity

 

To change the schedule or priority for a scheduled activity that currently has the submitted or queued status:

1.      Select the activity in the Activity Monitor grid and click Edit Activity or right-click the activity and select Edit. The Activity Scheduling and Priority dialog box appears.

2.      Select the desired priority. Touchstone supports the following priorities for activities:

       Low: A job that is not critical and could be run later than other, more urgent jobs. Touchstone initiates low priority jobs in the order in which they are submitted using the following criteria:

       If and when sufficient capacity is available

       If and when there are no normal, high, or top priority jobs waiting

       If the job has been scheduled to run immediately or when the current date and time is after the scheduled date and time of a scheduled job

       Normal: (Default) A job that is not critical but should run at the next available opportunity. Touchstone initiates normal priority jobs in the order in which they are submitted using the following criteria:

       If and when sufficient capacity is available

       If and when there are no high or top priority jobs waiting

       If the job has been scheduled to run immediately or when the current date and time is after the scheduled date and time of a scheduled job

       High: A critical job that must be initiated as soon as possible. Touchstone initiates high priority jobs in the order in which they are submitted using the following criteria:

       If and when sufficient capacity is available

       If and when there are no top priority jobs waiting

       If the job has been scheduled to run immediately or when the current date and time is after the scheduled date and time of a scheduled job

       Top Priority: A highly critical job that must "skip to the front of the line." Touchstone initiates top priority jobs in the order in which they are submitted using the following criteria:

       If and when sufficient capacity is available

       If the job has been scheduled to run immediately or when the current date and time is after the scheduled date and time of a scheduled job

  Only System Administrators can assign "Top Priority" to a job. For more information about the System Administrator user role, see Role Permissions.

For more information about job priorities, see Setting the Priority of a Job.

3.      Select one of the following scheduling options:

       Schedule On: Select the date and time after which you want the activity to start.

       Queue Now: For an activity that was previously scheduled, you can remove the scheduled start date and time and indicate that Touchstone should queue the activity immediately and that the job should start as soon as possible.

4.      Click OK. Touchstone refreshes the Activity Monitor grid to display the updated priority and scheduling information for the activity that you have edited.
