You can add a command list to a job. When adding the job use F7. You can
even manipulate the parameters. Maybe you just want the SBMJOBJS to do the
same thing as a scheduled job? Set up the job then submit it. I'm not
sure what the objection is here.

Yes ROBOT does that too (in my view table stakes for a scheduler)

No, the regular job scheduler does not do much of what the "ADVANCED Job
Scheduler" does, hence the name, and extra charge.

Only job "JOB" has the actual command to execute. The command for the

SBMJOBJS JOB(JOB) TIME(*IMMED)

so if I ever want to change the actual command, it's only in 1 place.

Yes, we do use SBMJOBJS a lot. But, in my opinion, it demonstrates the
lack of an important functionality. We should be able to define what I
call a procedure (a list of commands to run), and address this procedure
in all the scheduled jobs, whatever the schedule they could have. With
this functionnality, you indeed define the work to do in only one place,
but you can use it in several places. Typical usages could be "ending
all applications", "starting all applications" procedures. Then those
procedures can be used by daily, weekly, monthly, quaterly, yearly
(whatever the schedule actually) scheduled jobs. In case of need to
change what to do (for example, include a new application), you update
only the appropriate procedure, not all the scheduled jobs.

If I am not wrong, Robot Schedule's HelpSystems provides such a
functionality.


Not rocket science I know, but I don't know if the regular job scheduler
can do this. And there are a lot of options in AJS I haven't even looked
at.
Regular Job Scheduler cannot do what you describe, and it does not
provide any jobs dependancy processing (IMO, one of the most important
features), like AJS (and other Scheduling software) does.
