Schedules are only applied on selective and event harvests.
A schedule defines a harvesting frequency. The minimum entity is one minute. It is possible to choose an automatically fixed start and/or end time for a specific harvest.
For a new schedule click on Create new schedule. And to edit an existing schedule press Edit.
Give the schedule an easily recognizable name – note that the name can't be changed once saved. If necessary, add a comment.
Fill in the frequency and – if necessary - time of the day for harvests using this schedule to run. In the drop down menu you have the choice between minutes, hours, days, weeks and months. Changing hours/days/weeks/months/minutes switches the Time of day so that:
- “hours” lets you choose a specific minute of the hour
- “days” lets you choose a specific time of day
- “weeks” lets you choose a specific day of the week
- “months” lets you choose a specific day of the month
- Selecting a "minutes" based schedule does not allow you any further specification of when the schedule is to run.
After selecting the frequency you must select Start at the earliest which could either be as soon as possible (default) or at a specific date and time.
The last thing to determine is how long this schedule should go on. The default for the duration of a schedule is forever. It is also possible to choose an end date and a certain number of harvests to perform. This allows you to define schedules that will only run in a shorter period – e.g. in connection with an event harvest where the date range in which to harvest is predefined.
