Scheduling the scanning of source folders

Use scheduling to control when Connect pulls files from a source folder.


The scheduling option can be found by going to the Servers tab and expanding the folders associated with a server. Clicking on a folder brings up the folder settings where the scheduling can be set on the Schedule tab.



Scan frequency: This setting determines how often Connect will scan the input folder for new files. By choosing continuously, Connect will scan the folder several times per minute, whereas if you specify the time interval option you can manually set the number of seconds between each scan.

Run Schedule: By clicking and/or dragging in this grid you can set a run schedule based on the time of the day and the day of the week. White dots in the grid indicate when the folder is active while blue dots indicate when there is no scanning of the folder.


Remember to click the Save button in the lower-right corner when you have made changes to the configuration.
