Step 4:

  • Enter the complete URL of your file in the following format:
  • http://www.yourdomain.com/myfile.aspx
  • The file or page can be uploaded or modified later.
  • Files that can be browsed with a browser (e.g., html, asp, aspx, php) can be used here with their COMPLETE URL. For example, if your domain is abc.com and your file (myfile.aspx) is located under wwwroot/myschedule, the COMPLETE URL for this file would be:
  • http://www.abc.com/myschedule/myfile.aspx
  • Finally, specify a scheduled time to execute this URL. You can execute the URL on any of the following bases:
  • Daily
  • Weekly
  • Monthly
  • Once (Single-time execution)
  • Interval basis (Hour / Minute)

  • Choose the desired execution interval and provide an execution time. Then click the “Save” button. Your scheduled task is now set to execute according to the provided schedule.

Note: There are a few other inputs on this configuration page, but they are not related to our requirement.
