Using CA 7 ARF to send a message to console when a job is in LATE status

In CA 7 I need a mechanism that notifies me when a job is late.
From the manual, I noticed that ARF could be used to send a message to the console.
How do you setup and create an ARF to send a delayed routine message to the console and associate it with a job?
Release : 12.1
Component : CA 7
To setup and create an ARF to send a delayed routine message to the console follow the steps below:
1) Use ARF (Automated Recovery Facility) to create an ARFSET exception condition ruleTYPE: LA which results when CA 7 initially prompts for a LATE job execution status condition in the LQ. No type-specific tests are defined for the LA exception.
2) Define a Response action in the ARFSET rule to take when a job is showing LATE for execution and send a message to the console.
3)Below is a screenshot example of an ARFSET name definition (called JOBLATE) to send a message to the console. TYPE: must beTYPE: LA and RESPONSES: AM,CM=C,M=&JOBNAME LATE LATE!!!
4) Add the ARFSET name to a job via the DB.1 JOB Definition panel as follows:
- In the Requirements section - ARFSET:Up to 8 alpha character name
Once the ARFSET name is created and defined to the Job if the Job is late for execution you should see it flagged as LATE in CA 7 LQ.
An alert message similar to the one below will show up in the CA 7 Log file and CA 7 Browse dataset.
SCNP-11 JOB JOBABTI1(0151) SYS=SYSA *** IS LATE *** REQUIRED BY 22.291 AT 1745, MUST START BY 22.291 AT 1646 SCHID=010 PROSE#=00000000 ERQD=000 ENSAT=000 IRQD=000 INSAT=000 MCNT=001 FLAGS=34/0C/20/02/00/10/00
NOTE:An alternative to using ARF to route messages to a console is to configure and activate the Master Station Message Routing (MSMR) Table.
