Scheduled task templates

Tasks have many configuration options. If there's a task configuration that you tend to reuse, you can make it a task template. The next time you create a new task, you can create it from the template and have that template's task settings automatically applied.

Management Suite ships with some default task templates that are preconfigured with recommended settings.

To create new scheduled task based on an existing template
  1. Click Tools > Distribution > Scheduled tasks.
  2. From the tree's Task Templates group, open the shortcut menu for the template you want and click Create scheduled task(s).
  3. The Schedule task dialog box opens with the template's settings preconfigured. Customize the settings as necessary and click Save.
To create new scheduled task based on a template

  2. Click the Task templates tree item.
  3. On the toolbar, click New > Software distribution template or New > Patch template.
  4. Configure the template settings and click Save. Your new template will appear in the tree under Task templates.
