Using Workflow on a Schedule

Hello,

I am new to Salesforce. I recently completed the Force.com Platform Fundamentals guide (An Introduction to Custom Application Development in the Cloud).

I know that I can pass data to a web service from Salesforce (this is shown in Chapter 11). However, everything I see relies on a trigger from the data or a user initiated action. My question is, in Salesforce, to call a web service on a given time interval? If so, how?

Thank you!

You can schedule a batch apex class to run at specific time intervals. See this article: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/Content/apex_scheduler.htm

Hope that helps
