Calendars are used for two reasons in Automate Schedule.
Schedule exceptions based on holidays or non-working days.
To automate schedule any exceptions on holidays or other non-working days of the year, simply add them to the standard calendar included in the base product.
Multiple calendars can be created for specific holiday exceptions, such as different countries or different holiday exceptions for specific groups of jobs.
Fiscal period end dates for monthly job schedules.
Create a fiscal calendar if the production jobs run on fiscal period cycles instead of regular monthly cycles with your period end dates selected.
When scheduling a job, add the fiscal calendar to the job. Automate Schedule will look to that calendar for the proper dates when running a job on the last day of the month.
Note: Skybot Scheduler has been renamed to Automate Schedule and is now part of the Automate suite of products. The existing Skybot Scheduler features and functionality are the same; only the product name has changed.
