    Is it possible to future schedule a job so that it comes in on hold through Workload Editor.
    I am aware that you can use the JOBATTRH Hold, but is it possible to do so through the GUI?  I have a user who likes to create and schedule jobs through Workload Editor, and was curious if there is a way for a job on a specific date to be on hold?

    Hi Elliott,

    Yes, on the above screen, you can select "hold on submission" for this purpose. Note: you will need to select it twice to show "V" in the box.

    This will make the HOLD option show on the JOB.

    If you want to have HOLD option with IF condition, like below:
    IF TODAY('July 1 2020') THEN JOBATTR HOLD

    Then there is no screen/panel option, you will need to choose "Free form text" to add it.

    Hope this helps,

    Lucy
