I personally do not use the scheduler-possibilites of a single qvw whenever a QV-server is present.
Use instead the qmc, it is very easy to install reload-tasks. You are on the right track to apply a task to this document. A publisher is not necessary for it.
You are using 11.00. For the newer 11.20 the "single qvw-scheduler" is not (no longer) supported.
The problem is I only have access to the QMC on our test environment. On the other environments it's locked down so I need to go through a (ridiculous) process in order to get anything done. I was hoping this would be a way for me to set the schedule on a document without having to go through this process. Any other ideas?
