App of the Week – Clicks not code to schedule Apex jobs in Salesforce with JobBook
Apex jobs are an incredible tool for bringing your Salesforce to a whole new level. Standard Apex lets you run complex code automatically when you make certain updates in Salesforce (through Triggers), or create custom buttons, Visualforce pages, and much more. With scheduled Apex, you can run bulk updates on your data, integrate with external systems, or even send complex emails with specialized attachments far beyond what workflows would let you accomplish. But for all their power, Apex jobs can be challenging and time consuming to write and manage. If you’re an admin (and don’t quite have the coding chops to dive in), it is even worse. Want to cancel a run? Want to change the schedule? I hope you have your developer team on speed dial, or you’re going to have a stressful day. Managing scheduled jobs will cost you time, money, and more than a few grey hairs. Wouldn’t it be great if you could schedule Apex jobs with clicks, not code? Well, let me introduce you to JobBook!
JobBook provides a single interface from which you can manage your scheduled Apex jobs in Salesforce.com. Using JobBook you can easily schedule, modify and view scheduled Apex jobs from a single interface.
