A Step-by-Step Guide on How Apsona Scheduler Works

Step 1


The Apsona Scheduler utilizes Salesforce’s OAuth 2.0 facility for secure and efficient user authentication, ensuring a seamless and secure user experience.
Step 2


The Scheduler service is programmed to wake up at regular intervals—every six hours, to be precise (e.g. midnight, 6 am, noon, and so on).
Step 3

Login & Authentication

Upon awakening, the Scheduler logs into your org using the OAuth credentials you’ve provided, maintaining the integrity and security of your data.
Step 4

Task Scheduling & Execution

Post login, the Scheduler checks for any tasks scheduled to be run during that time frame. It seamlessly runs the tasks, processes the results, and, if required, sends out the necessary emails to keep all stakeholders informed.
Step 5

Back to Rest

After executing all scheduled tasks and processes, the Scheduler goes back to sleep, ready to wake up again in the next six-hour interval and ensure that your organization continues to run like clockwork.

Quick Insight

The Scheduler relies heavily on Salesforce’s SOAP API for efficient data retrieval, ensuring that your tasks are not only executed on time but are also backed by the most accurate and up-to-date information available.

Apsona Base Module

For Apsona Scheduler to work its magic, it’s essential to have Apsona for Salesforce as the foundational stone.

No, we do not store your credentials. Apsona’s scheduler uses Salesforce’s OAuth 2.0 capability to run your reports for you. This ensures that your credentials are not stored anywhere outside Salesforce.
No, because Apsona’s Scheduler uses Salesforce-issued OAuth security tokens to access your data. Your scheduled reports will continue to work even if you change your password.
No. When the report must be executed, the scheduler queries your Salesforce database directly, extracts only the necessary data, constructs and formats the report and sends off the email messages. The data is never stored anywhere on our servers, not even temporarily.
The total size of the HTML email body, HTML attachment or CSV attachment cannot exceed 20 MB. If your email body or attachment exceeds that limit, the email you receive will include an error message indicating the size of the generated attachment, so that you can tweak your report to reduce the attachment size.
The scheduler sends its emails through your Salesforce org. So these messages count against your message quota, which is usually at least 1,000 messages a day.
Scheduling Apsona Reports Scheduling Apsona Emails with attached Doc Merges
