# Scheduled Jobs
Scheduled jobs may be configured to run commands at a specified interval. Forge provides several common defaults, or you may enter a custom Cron schedule for a command.
You can create scheduled jobs through the Forge dashboard via the Schedule tab for the server's management dashboard. When creating a new scheduled job, you'll need to provide:
- The command to run, for example
php /home/forge/default/artisan schedule:run.
- The user to run the command as, for example
- The frequency to run the command at.
Scheduled Job Not Running?
If your scheduled job is not running, you should ensure that the path to the command is correct.
