Creating custom scheduled jobs

I know this can be done for WVS scheduler but I am looking for general instructions related to a old Windchill idea

Task for notifying users on running old Tasks. Cat herding has not worked and I believe there are a set of infrequent users who let the "you have a task" emails flow by.  I am looking to see if anyone has written a custom job scheduler in Windchill that can run daily or on a schedule to process open tasks and look for the late ones.

 

My requirements on email notifications would be unique but I am looking for the hooks to schedule jobs and execute them. Are there existing queues to piggie back on or do I need my own queue? Looking for your feedback and I will share what I learn on my own.

Re: Creating custom scheduled jobs

One solution that I came up with is simple and leverages existing techniques. I can create a custom workflow with a timer and an endless loop. Custom code can be called from an external method call. This might be the easiest to deploy and stay nimble.  Thoughts?
