What is Scheduled Apex?

Scheduled apex is all about to run a piece of apex code at some particular time within a period of time. Schedule apex in Salesforce is a class that runs at a regular interval of time. To schedule an apex class, we need to implement an interface Schedulable. If you want to run a piece to schedule code at the first of every month or day-wise you can use to make your life easier when you have to redeploy/change this code Scheduler apex runs as system mode that means whether the user has permission to execute the class or not, they can execute  the class. You can browse a new scheduled apex job every 10 minutes and it is really interesting starting a career as Salesforce Developer. Also, you can access scheduled batch apex from developer console using the right code and strategy.
