Schedule regular tasks

After creating the bat file, you can schedule it using the Windows function Scheduled tasks.

Schedule regular tasks:

  1. Go to: 'Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / Scheduled Tasks' ('Task Scheduler' in Windows 7/8).
  2. Click on: "Add a new task".
  3. Click on: Next.
  4. Click on: "Browse".
  5. Select the bat file.
  6. Click on: "Open".
  7. Enter a description.
  8. Select the recurrence pattern check box.
  9. Click on: Next.
  10. Enter the time and date on which you want to start the task.


    Select the correct time format. The recommendation is:

    ACTUAL at 06:00, SIGNAL at 06:30 and BACKUP in the evening, before the tape starts (usually around 21:00).

    Batch files for the tax authority, such as those for wage declarations and VAT declarations, at least the night before the declaration terms ends. See also the adding of two schedules to a single task to ensure that the processing order is correct.

  11. Click on: Next.
  12. Enter the name and password of the user who will be performing the task. We recommend using the ProfitCOM+ user for this.

    The command line user must have the correct access rights, namely the setting Command line (for regular command line actions) or Backup copies from command line (for backups).

  13. Click on: Next.

    You will now see a summary of the data set by you.

  14. Click on: Finish.
