    There is a concept of running jobs in the steps where if you maintain 2 jobs in then only after 1st job finish, 2nd job will run.

    I am not sure if you are trying to do the same thing.

      If you do not want to run the jobs in steps then schedule the second job after certain time(after 1st job) and put a check in the second process to check the lock and if lock is present then wait for sometime.

    sorry keith. That wont work for me considering my requirement where I need to run the list of created files in a queue. The files are processed via a submit job and hence job steps wont work good for my scenario

    You can also schedule a job start condition to start at a specific time or "after event"

    You could create events after each job and schedule it that way.
