atrm commands let you schedule, review and remove jobs to be run at a specified time in the future.
They are built-in UNIX commands and not a Decipher invention. If you are using this for an email sends, you must use
bulk directly, which lets the job you schedule show up in the https://v2.decipherinc.com/admin/mailqueue page.
1: Scheduling a Task

at" with the date specification (run "
man at" for a full list of its formats but it's best to specify both time and date explicitly rather than using the shortcuts), then enter the commands to execute, and press Control-D on an empty line.

If you have many jobs, run
bulkq to view all the job numbers plus the
bulk command line in each one.
2: Removing a Task
To cancel a job, run
