Chapter 25. FileMaker Server > Scheduled Tasks

Scheduled Tasks

FileMaker Server 7 has a built-in capability for executing scheduled tasks. The three types of tasks that can be scheduled are database backups, execution of batch scripts, and sending messages to connected users.

The Server Administration Tool (SAT) is used to create scheduled tasks. On Windows, you use the Task Scheduling Assistant, which walks you through a series of seven screens, prompting you for a few bits of information about the schedule on each screen. On Mac OSX, you can click the New button while viewing the schedule list, or you can select Action, Schedules, New Schedule. The new task dialog on Mac OSX is shown in Figure 25.16.
