I would like to use task scheduler to run OpenSync during the day but stop at night.
When setting it up on task scheduler, I noticed that there’s only an option to “repeat task every x” but is there an option for me to just run OpenSync for a set duration continuously and then close it after the set duration expires? I don’t want OpenSync to open and close every few minutes for the whole day.
I currently have OpenSync to refresh every 10minutes.
Will these options work if I were to input them into task scheduler?
1) Repeat task every 10 minutes for a duration of 12 hours
2) Repeat task every 12 hours for a duration of 12 hours
To run OpenSync that way, you want to use windows task scheduler with “OSRun.exe”, you don’t have to create a schedule task. Just create a regular task and open windows task scheduler (Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8986eNlXjos to learn how it works, In the argument you can put the task name). This will do it. I hope this solves your situation.
I don’t understand how this works using the method shown in the video. From the options provided in creating a “basic task” it looks like it’ll just open once a day at the time I set it to, but where do I set how long it runs for? How do I make it close at a certain time?
I want OpenSync to stay open from 6am to 6pm. How do I do that?
Sorry if it was explained and I wasn’t bright enough to see it.
If you want that specific way to run your task. It is not a simple task. You will have to have a regular task create on OpenSync then you will create a task on windows task scheduler(not a basic task). You will have to create an action and a trigger to achieve that. Please see attached.
Got it, Thank you.
