Instead, CA-7 will scan lead jobs in a range of 4 hours with increments of 2 hours. For example, at midnight, CA-7 will scan in jobs that will run for the next 4 hours. At 2 a.m., CA-7 will scan again for jobs that will run between the time of 2 a.m. - 6 a.m., etc.Users on CA-7 will have access to do the following: Hold, edit, cancel, restart/rerun, demand and make temporary scheduling changes to jobs. The Tech Team will resume responsibility with any permanent scheduling changes. Action Commands:In CA-7, action commands can be entered from any CA-7 panel to produce immediate results. By hitting the HOME key and getting to the home space (top-left portion of your screen), you can type in command strings to do almost anything you want.Screen Method:This is a mixture of using screens (menus) and commands.
