Scheduling tasks

The Scheduled tasks application allows you to configure how the system executes automatic tasks. Scheduled tasks can be useful when you need to perform operations at a specific time or regularly over a certain time period. Many Kentico features leverage scheduled tasks.

Configuring scheduled task settings

To configure scheduled task settings:

  1. Open the Settings application.
  2. Select the System category.
  3. Adjust the settings in the Scheduler section.
  4. Click Save.

Managing scheduled tasks

To work with individual scheduled tasks, open the Scheduled tasks application.

Two types of tasks are available:

  • Global - affect the entire system (global features and objects). Only available for users with the Global administrator privilege level. Choose the (global) option in the Site selector.
  • Site-related - tasks that affect content related to the selected Site.

Managing scheduled tasks for a site

The System tasks tab provides an overview of temporary tasks created dynamically by the system. System tasks internally provide functionality for various Kentico features. You cannot manually create system tasks.
