How To Run Scheduled Tasks

This article describes two different methods on how to run scheduled tasks with SmartFTP.

Method - Service in Background (Session 0) - Recommended

    Logon type:
    (o) Run whether user is logged on or not
    Enabling the [ ] Run with highest privileges option is not necessary.
  4. To verify the setup, go to the Scheduler pane and run the task that you have created in 3.
  5. The task will be added to the background transfer queue which you can monitor in the Background Transfer Queue pane.

Method - Interactive Session

With this method, transfers run in the SmartFTP process in the interactive session. This is the session of the currently logged on user where the interface of SmartFTP is displayed.
  1. Setup and configure SmartFTP (license activation, favorites, etc.) under the same user account which runs the scheduled tasks.
  2. When creating scheduled tasks in SmartFTP, in the General dialog use the following Security options:
    (o) Run only when user is logged on
    Enabling the [ ] Run with highest privileges option is not necessary.
