Creating a Schedule on Profiles

Creating a Scheduled Profile

Perform file transfer tasks on a schedule without manually starting them.  You can use Scheduled Transfers to perform file transfers at times when network traffic is light, or to be sure that your files are always up to date.

A scheduled profile automatically starts any Automated Transfer profile at your desired time.  You can schedule an Automated Transfer Profile while it is being created, or add schedule details to the existing Automated Transfer Profile.  Scheduling the same automated transfer more than once is also possible.  For instance, you could schedule a transfer daily at a specific time as well as each time when the program starts. 

The transfer tasks can be scheduled to be a one-time event, or take place daily, weekly or monthly. Also using On Application launch, you can run the schedule each time the program starts.  In addition, with the help of On Folder change, schedule will be invoked when any change occurs to the folder.

When specifying the action rules for Automated Transfer profile, you can click Configure button for the Schedule.

Schedule Name: You can specify a name for the schedule.  This will avoid any confusion if you are scheduling multiple automated profiles.

Select the Type of Schedule:

Perform transfer: You can configure the following schedule types:

Additional Settings: You do not have to worry about your scheduled transfer even if the windows is logged off at the scheduled time.  Just enable the option Login to run the schedule even if your system is Logged Off.  It allows the profile to run at the scheduled time.  When you enable this option, you need to specify Windows password.


Scheduler helps you to view the details of the schedules while creating or editing automated transfer profile. This is useful to see which schedules are already configured for this profile, type of schedule, last run and next run status.

Schedule Overview page

Schedule Overview page helps you to view the status and manage all the schedules that are currently added in the application.  Click on the schedule from Schedules section in Connection Profile panel and the respective schedule will be selected in the Schedule overview page, if it is not running.

You can Add, Edit a schedule according to your need.  If you don't want a schedule to run at specified time, either Disable (when schedule is not running) it or Stop it (when schedule is running).  To remove the schedule from application, select Delete. You can also View Report to get detailed information about the transferred files.
