Question:  

How can I rename a scheduled request ? 

 

Solution:

From VM:Schedule's Expert User Main menu, select 1 to schedule a request;

 1  SCHEDULE  Schedule a request for initiation by VM:Schedule to run on your userid.

Specify the request name you want to rename it to and anything else in the command line area and Hit PF5 for the COPY function.
The original request's command information will be displayed once PF5 is pressed.

The next screen will display the original request with the name and 'For userid' areas cleared.
Enter the new request name and the user ID information.

Hit PF12 for SUBMIT

Once the new copy looks as you want it, you can just cancel the old request.

Now verify 1st run dates and different criteria on the renamed request to be sure that everything was carried over/copied correctly.
