Execute a Bulk Task

The Execute Bulk Task task allows you to schedule a bulk task or manually start a bulk task right away. Bulk tasks are usually scheduled, but starting a bulk task manually does not interfere with any scheduling already configured on the bulk task, and the bulk task runs immediately. Once you select Execute Bulk Task, select Execute now to start the bulk task manually.

To schedule a bulk task to run periodically, use the recurrence functionality. Once you select Execute Bulk Task, select Schedule new job and choose the options that you want.

The Preview button allows you to see what objects will be affected by the bulk task before starting it.

Note: If your bulk task population includes 500 objects, 500 nested tasks are created; one for each object. For performance reasons, we recommend scheduling bulk tasks with large populations.
