The BrightWork Timer jobs check the following conditions before running:
|ReadLocked||If the site collection has ReadLocked set to true then it will not be processed.|
|ReadOnly||If the site collection has ReadOnly set to true then it will not be processed. Note: This is the site collection state when it is being backed up. You should take care not to schedule e-mails when the site collection backup runs.|
|WriteLocked||If the site collection has WriteLocked set to true then it will not be processed.|
Note: If the site collection is not a BrightWork site collection it will not be processed. This helps the timer job run quicker.
