Task Scheduler in Inventor 2011
Task Scheduler is a separate application that performs automated tasks and acts as a batch processor in Autodesk Inventor and other applications.
To open Task Scheduler, click Start >Programs >Autodesk > Autodesk Inventor (version) > Tools > Task Scheduler.
Use the Task Scheduler to organize and define one or more time-consuming tasks from different types of programs, and execute the tasks in a specified order at a time that you schedule. Close the Task Scheduler window, and the tasks you scheduled run at the specified time.
Task Scheduler contains predefined task managers for executing common tasks, and a custom task manager for defining your own tasks. A Sequential Task manager is provided to set up multiple predefined and custom tasks. The Migrate Files task is used to migrate files directly from the Vault.
In addition to Custom and Sequential tasks, the predefined tasks include:
- Migrate Files
- Update Design
- Publish DWF Files
- Print Files
- Import and Export Files
- Check In to Vault
- Check Out from Vault
- Get Latest Version from Vault
- Convert IDW to DWG
- Refresh Standard Components in Assemblies
