Central admin - monitoring - job definitions

Find the job called notification summary or daily notification, can'tt remember the exact name. There should be one of these jobs per web app. If you click it you van change the time.

Hi there,

changed the "Notification Timer Job c02c63c2-12d8-4ec0-b678-f05c7e00570e " to run between 9am and 5pm.

but a user just got a notification at 23:56, is there anywhere else to check?

Thanks

DId this user set a scheduled alert on the list?  They could have created an alert and manually set it to send at midnight.

I needed to set the "workflow timer" service, not the notification timer job
