Some flows should capture or transform data on a regular basis. Your application may require that flows run on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly schedule. The Job Schedule dialog steps you through the process, and allows you to set the schedule for almost any interval and frequency. 
The flow must have already been created to schedule it.
Access the Job Schedule dialog by navigating to the folder System > Jobs And Events > Scheduled Jobs and clicking theAdd Schedule Job button.

Example

In the example, we will schedule a flow to run immediately on a Time Span schedule.
Begin by navigating to the folder System > Jobs And Events > Scheduled Jobs and clicking the Add Schedule Job button.

Under Schedule Configuration, in the Calendar drop-down dialog, we select the Time Span Schedule option.

A Time Span schedule sets a job to run regularly, with the interval we define between each instance.
