Scheduler

A Schedule can be set for a Process, in order to run it at specific days/times or keep it running in time intervals using a recurring Schedule.

For Schedules to work, the WinAutomation Services must be running in the background, constantly checking and starting Processes if a Schedule is set.

If you right-click on the ​​Agent in the System Tray​​ and choose Exit WinAutomation, you will disable all Triggers and Schedules and close all functionality of WinAutomation until you run the program again. This is different from the Console, so Schedules will still run normally if the Console alone has been closed.

Schedules, like Triggers, can be disabled universally from the Schedulers tab after selecting "Select All" and "Disable Schedule(s)". This means that no Process will run on its Schedule, until you change this setting. If you want to disable the Schedule for one Process without deleting it, right-click on the Process and choose Disable Process. Now this Process will not run, manually or on its Schedule, until you Enable it again.
