Scheduled closing dates
The scheduler can be used to schedule intermediate closing dates within an Open Period. After a scheduled closing date, users who do not have Approve Timesheet permission for their team are blocked from adding and editing worklogs for dates that are before the closing date. To add or edit such worklogs, users must ask a user with Approve Timesheet permission for their team to grant a short Grace Period, during which the worklogs are accessible. An overview of a scheduler configured with weekly closing dates is shown in the image below.

The green ticked icon shows active items, but inactive items would be shown with a red minus icon.
In the Operations line, click the Edit link to adjust settings for the Scheduler. The edit mode for the Scheduler is opened and looks like in the screenshot below. The items from both screenshots are explained in the table below.

The name of the scheduled closure configuration.
Three types can be chosen from a drop-down, e.g. Weekly, Biweekly or Period.
In the edit mode you choose which day of the week to repeat the scheduled closure on. The Status Reminder will show the next scheduled end date, given the type and repeat date chosen. This becomes the date when an email is sent about Status reminder for all users.
The Late Reminder is calculated from two items in the edit mode, Close [ ] working days after end date and Send email to late users [ ] hours before closure. The box for sending Status reminder for later users needs to be ticked to activate the Late Reminder.
If the closing should happen 2 days after end date, but the email is sent 12 hours before closure, the Later Reminder happens 1.5 days after the end date (as in the screenshots above). If the closing and end dates are the same (0 working days after end date) and the email will be sent 12 hours before closure, e.g. it will be sent 12 hours before the closing/end date.
If a green ticked icon is shown in the Scheduler Settings overview, the Activate This Scheduler box has been ticked in the edit mode.

Gives the next closing date, based on the number given in Close [ ] working days after end date and the Type chosen.

In the first screenshot above, three links are shown:
Disable Tempo Scheduler - displays the following screen:
List Users that Receive Email from Scheduler - displays a list of users receiving emails from the scheduler. The users listed should have the Tempo Time Tracking permission and in order to receive email, they need to either have logged some time or be in a workload scheme with required workload.
Scheduled Reminders differ from Scheduled Closures, in that they are just reminders and there is no closing date. This means that when editing the Scheduler, the box Make Scheduler Close stays unchecked - see screenshots below.

Note that Send email to late users [ ], changes from hours beforeclosure to hours after end date.
