A convenient, optional feature of Conga Batch is the ability to schedule a batch process. Scheduled Conga Batch solutions run without user initiation on a recurring, scheduled basis (such as every Monday at 8 AM). A user does not have to manually launch the batch; instead Conga Batch “looks for” batches that are queued to run on a scheduled basis and runs them automatically. Scheduling is available only from a Conga Batch record (not a List View button).
The ability to run a batch of records on a scheduled basis without user oversight or intervention potentially poses a great risk. For example, once scheduled, hundreds of documents, communications, and/or eSignature requests could be inadvertently sent to external recipients. Please thoroughly test the solution and confirm it’s working correctly before scheduling it to run automatically.
