Job Scheduling Administration

All versions of Windows have built-in job scheduling systems, designed to run scheduled tasks at predetermined times.  Hyena provides easy access to any scheduled job on any Windows server or workstation.

Hyena's job scheduling functions support:

  • Viewing all scheduled jobs on one or more computers at the same time.
  • Automatic detection of remote computer job scheduling interface: Windows Task Scheduler 1.0 or the newer Task Scheduler 2.0 found in Window Vista/7/8 and Windows Server 2008/2012.
  • Adding, modifying, or deleting scheduled jobs.

Hyena includes support for both Windows Task Scheduler 1.0 and 2.0.  Hyena provides direct access to the Task Scheduler job properties for any remote computer, including creating new tasks, triggers, and actions.

Hyena also includes important job cloning (copying) capabilities for Task Scheduler 1.0 tasks.  One or more "reference tasks" can be copied from a selected source computer to any number of destination (target) computers, complete with logging and automatic job internal spacing.

For Task Scheduler 2.0 tasks, Hyena supports task folder navigation, on-demand task starting and termination, displaying running tasks, importing, and exporting.
