    Solution with Connections Administration Toolkit (CAT)

    Navigate to Administration – Communities, subsection Scheduled Tasks. There, you can see all available scheduled tasks for Communities in the individual tabs.

    Problem 1: To change the schedule, simply click in the Cron-Expression text-box, and a window will open where you can read the schedule more easily than in its condensed cron expression form. You can also edit the schedule there.

    After editing the parameters, a confirmation popup summarizes the changes and allows you to enter a comment. All changes, comments, and who made them, are logged by the CAT application.

    Problem 2: To view whether a scheduled task is still operating, and when it will be fired next, simply click ‘Get Details’
