This article describes how to submit a job or report to be run as part of a batch process on a different computer. The batch job is submitted to a batch server, where the jobs are queued and run.


Some of the options described in this article are not available on all Batch tabs.

Submit a batch job from a form or report

  1. In any batch-enabled form or report, click the Batch tab.

  2. Select the Batch processing check box.

  3. Set any of the following options:

    • Caption – Enter a description for the job.

    • Batch group - Assign the job to a batch group.

      Batch groups are designed to enable you to run specific types of jobs on a specific batch server, or to run jobs on batch servers that are available at specific times. Batch groups are created by system administrators.

    • Private – Select this check box to restrict other users from processing your batch job. A private job can be run only by the user who submitted it, from the Set up batch processing form, and only on the computer where the user is logged on.

  4. Click Recurrence to configure a batch job to recur on a specific schedule.

  5. Click Alerts to configure alerts for a batch job.


The Start date at the bottom of the form lists the next scheduled start time for the batch job.
