Our requirement is job should be executed only when there is a request and that too after a fixed period. Thats why I am searching for some parameters that could help me in doing so.
Well, i suppose the users could send an e-mail when they have a request. An "appointment" could then be made on some desktop calendar raising an alert when "it is time". Then the job could be submitted to run.
Kind of far-fetched, but makes as much sense as creating some sub-standard scheduling process.
What business requirement dictates that the already working scheduling procesds could not be used?
