Batch groups are used to group and run selected tasks on a specific batch server. Examples of batch groups include the following:

  • Jobs that run on a specific computer.

  • Jobs that require many resources.

  • Jobs that belong to a specific module.

  • Jobs that run at certain intervals, for example every night, every week, or every month.

When the batch process is started, the jobs and reports in the batch group are run according to the start date, start time, and recurrence parameters specified on the individual jobs.

Client tasks must be assigned to batch groups in order to be run manually by using the form. For more information, see Run client and private tasks.
