Running Cron Schedules Manually

While cron jobs allow you to schedule automated processes so that you don't have to do manual work, there are occasions when it may be necessary to trigger the process off schedule. Typically we see people do this during testing of new jobs, testing changes to existing jobs, or troubleshooting.

The process queued payment job is in the examples as this is most frequently run manually during testing and training, but the steps are the same for all cron schedules.
