SSRS Subscrptions - Reschedule subscription run times via report server.


We are looking for the best way to reschedule our report subscriptions on the report server.   With hundreds of subscriptions its not practical to go thru each one on the web site.  We can query our subscription data on the report server and I see the Schedule table.  However its not clear how to easily change the start time for the subscriptions.

Any help or direction appreciated.

--So this query should give you all associated SSRS reports/SQL jobs and their schedules.
--All you will need is to update next_run_date/next_run_time for each of the listed schedules in the msdb.dbo.sysschedules however...
--PLEASE make sure you back up the table or even better the MSDB database AND
--PLEASE perform the changes in a DEV/QA test environment first

-- Get list of reportnames and associated SQL jobs
select      distinct
      'ReportName' =,
      'SQLJobName' =,
      'JobScheduleId'= js.schedule_id,
from ReportServer.dbo.Subscriptions s
      inner join ReportServer.dbo.Catalog c on c.ItemID = s.Report_OID
      inner join ReportServer.dbo.Users us on us.UserID = s.OwnerId
      inner join msdb.dbo.sysjobs j on j.job_id = (select job_id from msdb.dbo.sysjobsteps where command like '%'+CONVERT(nvarchar(128),s.Report_OID)+'%')
      inner join msdb.dbo.sysjobschedules js on j.job_id=js.job_id
      inner join msdb.dbo.sysschedules sc on js.schedule_id=sc.schedule_id
