Administrator Guide
Task Scheduler

Description:

This is the administrator guide for using the Scheduler with the AD Pro Toolkit. The scheduler lets you create a schedule that will run the user bulk updater on an automated schedule.

  • Currently, the scheduler only works with the User Bulk Updater. Other tools will be added upon request.
  • When the schedule is configured the software can be closed.
  • You can log out of the computer and the task scheduler will run.
  • You can create multiple scheduled tasks.

Steps to create a scheduled task.

Step 1. Click on Scheduler from the top menu.

Step 2. Click the Add button to create a new schedule.

Step 3. Setup Task details.

  • Task name = Name of the task
  • Credentials = The credentials that the task will run as
  • Setting = The frequency (how often) the task should run. You can choose daily, weekly or Monthly.
  • Path = The path to the csv file.

Here is an example schedule. This example will run the bulk updater every day at 11:06 AM and look for a CSV file c:\it\update\schedule_test.csv to use for updates.

From the Scheduler main screen, you can monitor the task status and next run time.

Log Files
