Task Scheduler Settings

The Task Scheduler settings tab serves as an interface for planning regular tasks in MyQ. There are seven predefined tasks:

System health check, History deletion, Data replication from sites, System maintenance, Database and settings backup, Log backup, and User Synchronization.

Apart from these, you can import projects from CSV files, and execute external commands.

External commands are disabled by default. To enable them, switch the scheduleExternalCommand parameter in the config.ini file from 0 (disabled) to 1 (enabled).
