The Windows Scheduled Task facility is a great way to automate recurring tasks on your Windows hosts. These tasks range from regularly scheduled maintenance, such as disk optimization or clearing the Internet Explorer cache, to occasional usage tasks such as resetting Desktop shortcuts.
The challenge with Windows Scheduled Tasks is a lack of centralized control. It is impractical for a systems administrator to connect to every individual machine and maintain Scheduled tasks, or to script the deployment and maintenance of Scheduled Tasks through AD login scripts or software distribution mechanisms. Often, the usefulness of Scheduled Tasks goes untapped due to this maintenance burden.
Task Scheduler Pro is the solution to this problem. Task Scheduler Pro can add, remove and edit scheduled tasks, as well as update their supporting files, on all managed Windows systems at the same time. You can quickly maintain all of the Scheduled Tasks on the Windows machines in your environment from a single interface.
Task Scheduler Pro runs on one Windows host, and there are no agents to deploy so installation and upgrades are fast and simple.
