What are scheduled tasks

Scheduled Tasks enable you configure MSP N-central to perform specific maintenance functions and tasks for a one-time or on a recurring basis. Setting the tasks on a schedule eliminates the need for you to remember to do them yourself, freeing time to give your attention to more important needs. Create scheduled tasks at the SO level.

Scheduled tasks can run across multiple customers or sites and take full advantage of filters to best target specific devices.

A Scheduled Task Profile will stop running if the probe associated with the profile is moved (for example, after moving a device). To continue running the profile:

  • Install another probe in the environment
  • Modify the rule that the scheduled task profile is associated with to reengage the probe. This can be as simple as renaming the rule.

If the MSP N-central server is in different a time zone than the devices that it is managing, scheduled tasks run according to the time zone of the target devices.
