Scheduler

Use the scheduler to add, modify and delete scheduled tasks within FortiNAC. A task is an action that is scheduled to occur at a specified time and is usually associated with a specific group.

There are two types of scheduling: fixed day and repetitive. A fixed day task is one in which you schedule a task to run on a combination of days of the week and times of the day, such as Mondays at 1:00 pm and Fridays at 10:00 am. A repetitive task is one that you schedule to start on a given day, at a certain time, for the number of times you specify, such as every 10 days starting today. You can set the repetition rate to any number of minutes, hours, or days.
