Configure the @schedule function

Use this procedure to configure the @schedule function. This function inserts the configured schedule into a string or date/time document property. Note, that you are not scheduling a document. You are just configuring a date/time using a schedule. The date/time string will be inserted in the document property you are configuring.

  1. Right-click in the appropriate document property and click Insert Function @schedule.
    This opens the Schedule dialog box.
  2. Set the appropriate Day option.
  3. Set the appropriate Time option.
  4. If you are inserting the schedule into a document property with a string type, you must also configure the following:
    1. In the String format box, enter the format the date/time string will use when it is inserted into the document property.
      See Format grids for descriptions of the available formats.
    2. In the Culture box, specify the culture name of the data in the document. The default is the current culture of the computer where the Output Manager Console is running. When culture is not specified, the culture independent CultureInfo.InvariantCulture is used.
  5. Click OK.
The function is inserted into the document property using one of the following formats:

For date/time properties: @scheduleDateTime(daytype,dayvalue,timetype,timevalue,,)

For string properties: @scheduleString(daytype,dayvalue,timetype,timevalue,format,culture)
