Tips for advanced scheduling

Challenge

The need to schedule the job in a more advanced way exists.

Cause

There exists a need to schedule the job to run at a different time on different days, or multiple specific times throughout a day.

Solution

Within the scheduler use the periodically every 1 hours option, then using the “Schedule…” button configure what hours the job should begin.
 
Example:
The company wants to configure the job to backup every two hours during business hours, and once a day on the weekends.
 
The administrator would configure the job to run every 1 hour,

then in the scheduler specify at the top of what hours the job should run.

More information

Using this method you can make very advanced schedules which can be different on a daily basis.
 
The other benefit to this method is that you can also get an exact count of how many restore points per week there are. So in the example above the company wants 2 weeks, which is  74 restore points to cover two weeks.
