0006498: Bad terminology in Process Request window

DescriptionIn General Setup > Process Scheduling > Process Request you can request system processes to either run immediately or at a later date. The Timing option controls the scheduling of the process and there are three options:

immediately (self explanatory)
later (process runs once at the time and date specified).
scheduled (process runs recurrently at the date and time specified). If an end date and time is not specified the process runs indefinitely.

IMO, the distinction between "Later" and "Scheduled" is difficult for the user to make, because if something is scheduled it is inherently later. The distinction is between a recurrent / ongoing task and a one off, discrete task.
Proposed SolutionThe options could possibly be narrowed to 2: "Now" and "Scheduled" with appropriate dimming logic to help the user choose between the recurrent task or the one-off.

Alternatively the labels could be changed to something like

"Scheduled one-time"
"Scheduled recurrent"
TagsNo tags attached.

Confusing indeed. I think renaming the labels as you propose, removes this confusion:

"Scheduled one-time"
"Scheduled recurrent"
