Scheduling an Apex Job through the ui


I am not sure if my memory is failing me, but I was sure there was a way to schedule an Apex Job through the Salesforce UI.

The documentation here only makes mention of using the cron syntax. and here only describes monitoring existing jobs.

Has this feature been removed, or am I missing something really obvious.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

Just checked - there is a Schedule Apex Button on the Setup > Develop > Classes screen, although I struggled to find a mention of it in the Scheduled Apex doc.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #2

Setup -> Develop -> Classes

You will see a "Schedule Apex" button. You can set up the timing from there.

Possible Suggestion/Solution #3

Step 1: Implement the Schedulable interface in an Apex class that instantiates the class you want to schedule. Step 2: From Setup, click Develop | Apex Classes and click Schedule Apex.
