QXO Delivery Schedules
A delivery schedule can be defined to control the transmission of a single document or multiple documents in a batch to subscribers at one or more specific times. You can select one delivery schedule to be used as the default schedule.
Outbound messages are sent only if they exist—that is, if the delivery time defined in a delivery schedule arrives and there are no outbound messages, nothing is sent.
Various types of schedule can be defined for transmitting documents:
Immediately when published. If no delivery schedules are defined this is the default system behavior. You select this option when defining a subscriber. See QXO Subscribers.
At a specified time (or times) during the day. You can choose from several predefined times or specify one or more user-specified times.
On selected days of the week at specified times.
During selected months on specified days at specific times.
Example: The QXO system administrator wants to configure a delivery schedule to send documents each hour during business days. A delivery schedule called BusinessHours is created and configured thus: the Sending Type is Weekly; the days Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are selected; Sending Times are specified for 08:00 – 17:00.
