Clearing a Periodic Schedule

If you decide you don't need to have anymore recurring batch jobs, you can clear the scheduled jobs from the Periodic Schedule. Once the Periodic Schedule is empty, the batch jobs in the Default Schedule come into effect.

2. Type n when you reach the following prompt:

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SCHEDULE ANY ENTRIES? (y/n) [y]

This clears the Periodic Schedule and displays an empty schedule, confirming that the system cleared the jobs.
