Task scheduler for Windows
VisualCron review by Download.hr Team on 22.11.2014
is a Windows-based application that works like the integrated task scheduler
but has more flexibility and features. VisualCron
is based on the Unix/Linux version of Cron.
If you are a network administrator and you have to take care of a big network, then it is probably hard to perform the exact same task on each computer. It would be better to make use of a software which allows you to control all the tasks using only the server computer. Task Scheduler, the application included in Windows, solves just a part of the problem since it can only perform tasks on the local computer. A far better solution would be VisualCron
. This is actually a task scheduler that can perform numerous tasks on all the computers in the network, while controlling them from a single place.
The application is simple enough to install and does not take up too much hard disk space. VisualCron
's interface is intuitive and appealing. It is easy to make a new job, change an existing job, see which jobs are running, and so on. When editing a job, you can assign a name and a descript
ion to help you easily identify each task.
Users moves through a tabbed window for every job, selecting the proper settings: what task or tasks it performs, what triggers it, what conditions it runs under, and how users are notified. . All of the jobs are listed neatly on the application's main screen, with other options displayed in a tabbed, well-labeled menu above. A built in Help file is well-written and thorough, providing clear explanations of all the application's functions.
The ability to place multiple tasks within one job means that users can make whole sequences of automated events. The software includes both a client and a server; the client includes the software's interface, while the server automatically runs the processes. When the server not installed or is turned off, jobs can be run manually. This flexibility enables users to create many different network configurations.
The tasks triggers are separated into two types. 'Time' triggers let you define a certain time and date when the task should be run. 'Event' triggers allow you to run a task when a file is created/changed/deleted/renamed, a process is started/finished, a service is started/stopped/ pending, or when a registry key is changed.
can even work over the Internet, not only in a local network.
you are able to automate boring and repetitive tasks, eliminate human errors, perform unattended work, as well as manage, react and notify on system issues and data errors.
