New FunctionalityTo Run Cognos Schedules For A Given Period Of Time After Outages

A regular question from our end users whenever there is a Cognos outage and they don't receive their schedule reports is, "Will I get them eventually?".

However, since those reports were never loaded into the scheduling queue because of the outage, there isn't a record of that missed execution nor a practical way to produce a list of reports scheduled during the outage that could be used to load into the scheduler execution queue once services are restored.

Is there any global functionality to run the schedule for a specified period in the past (the outage period)?

Across all areas, there are hundreds of reports scheduled each day, and a global schedule recovery tool might be useful in at least some of our outage scenarios.
