To begin working with test schedules, go to Test Management > Test Schedules. From here, you can access various types of operations which you can perform with a test schedule of your choice.
To create a test schedule, click Add New on the Test Schedules toolbar.
On the following Add Test Schedule form, provide the necessary information about a new schedule. You can use auto-fill to quickly describe the test schedule – to do that, just select a recent entry in the Auto-fill from Recent Entry drop-down list.
|Tip:||The required fields are marked with a red asterisk (*).|
To learn more about each field, see Test Schedule Reference.
On the Agent list, select an automated testing tool you want to use to run tests:
On the Hosts list, select the test host that will run the automated test. The list is populated with the machines where the Test Agent is installed and running. For more information on hosts and the Test Agent, please see Test Hosts and About Test Agent.
|Note:||If the tests are associated with a test host, the host on the schedule is more important: your tests will run on the test host specified in the schedule, not the host associated with the test in the Test Library.|
In Items to Run, link your automated tests or test sets. These tests or test sets will run on the test host in the order of selection.
Once your test schedule is ready, click Save and Close to apply the changes and close the form.
A new schedule will appear on the Test Schedules screen.
To perform operations with a specific schedule, click in the Actions column next to the schedule on the Test Schedules screen.

To apply the changes you have made, click Save and Close, or click Cancel to return back to the Test Schedules screen.
To delete a schedule, click Delete on the Edit Test Schedule form, then confirm this action in the subsequent dialog.
