A global timer can create time-controlled tasks once it is configured in the process and the process has been published on the server. These tasks will be listed and described in the Tools module. A global timer can also be started manually here. Events generated by a global timer can be responded to by a timer event handler associated with it. A global timer can also be started manually via the Edit menu / Start global timer job.
