Batch Process Group

A Batch Process Group is a group of Batch Process entries that are executed sequentially at a specified time. The time at which a Batch Process Group is executed is specified us cron notation.
Due to the date/time nature of the processing it is recommended that a long running process not cross 2:00 A.M. and possible not be scheduled earlier than 2:15 A.M. due to Daylight Savings Time issues. Although most operating systems will account correctly for Daylight Savings Time, this has not always been the case.

All the output files created by each Batch Process are grouped into one file and will be emailed if an email address is specified on the Batch Process Group.

The intent for a Batch Process Group is that it be executed using the cron facility. However, if need be, it may be executed using the Staff Portal.
