Infor Landmark asynchronous queues framework (async) is fundamental to any Infor Landmark technology platform-based application’s operations. Infor Landmark async is a powerful engine through which various actions related to Infor Landmark technology platform-based applications, for example, Infor CloudSuite Financials & Supply Management and Infor Global Human Resources, are handled. Infor Landmark async determines whether an action will process now or at a designated date and/or time. Infor Landmark async examples include application actions, process flow actions, application generated emails, user-generated documents, future-dated actions, and scheduling jobs and job streams. Infor Landmark async’s capabilities apply to any Infor Landmark technology platform-based application and to Infor cloud-based customers and Infor on-premises customers.
Since Infor Landmark async is applicable to every Infor Landmark technology platform-based application, Infor will be posting here on the Infor Technology Blog a series of Infor Landmark async videos describing and demonstrating this powerful feature. The video demonstrations are hosted and narrated by one of Infor’s foremost Infor Landmark async subject matter experts, Don Peterson, Principal Business Analyst.
The Infor Landmark async for the end user video series will include:
In this post’s part 3 video, Don describes and demonstrates how to schedule a job from the Infor CloudSuite Financials & Supply Management application’s Asset Analyst role. He answers the question, what is a “job?” Don discusses different kinds of jobs such as creating records, creating orders, closing processes, and running reports. An important topic that Don covers is the best practice of scheduling jobs to run when system use is low. This is useful for jobs that take a while to run, consume system resources, or those jobs that aren’t needed immediately. Don’s example demonstration uses the Asset Analyst role to create and schedule to run overnight two jobs for the Asset Register for two different companies, so the results can be viewed the next day. Be sure to watch for the upcoming Infor Landmark async videos in the coming weeks.
