Add other scheduled tasks

Tasks can be added to the Scheduler in two ways. You can go directly to the scheduler and create a new task for a group. Certain tasks can only be created from other configuration windows. For example, to schedule a weekly update of your Auto-Def file you must go to the Auto-Def Update window. This task is created and displays on the Scheduler window, but it cannot be created within the Scheduler window. The table below describes scheduled tasks that are created outside the Scheduler window, but, once created, display within that window.
