Work 365 provides two types of automation mechanisms. On-demand automation is achieved through Work 365 Jobs whereas scheduled automation is achieved through Scheduled Jobs. A brief comparison between both is provided below.
|Work 365 Job||Scheduled Job|
|Purpose||On-demand automation, such as sync a License Change Log or charge an invoice||Fixed interval-based automation such as invoice generation (once every 24hrs) or syncing subscriptions from Partner Center into Work 365 (once every 24hrs)|
|Available as a CRM Entity||Yes. The Work 365 Jobs entity is available and can be leveraged to invoke functionality through Power Automate or other means.||No. While an overview of the Scheduled Jobs are available via the Admin Hub, partners are not able to make changes or manually invoke this automation.|
