Cronette it's a software to specify tasks to be launched unattended by the Mac. It can be used on unattended Mac Servers or also on regular Mac workstations for tasks to execute during the night or for recurring tasks to be performed on a regular basis.
Cronette provides different type of launch tasks and any task can be specified to launch different type of execution.
How it works in details: • All the tasks inside Cronette are represented in a document table. The task is visualised in a master and details interface (the well know layout used in a multitude of Mac software, the user selects the task in the master table and he can see and edit details visualsed under the table) • User can insert in a document how many tasks he likes • User can assign to a task a name and a note to recognise it
The user can select for a task to run, different time plan type: • Daily: running at any day • Weekly: specifying which day of any week to run • Monthly: specifying which day of any month to run • Yearly: specifying month and day to run
And specifying: • Up to ten different time to run in the days of the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly plan • To run at the document opening, if the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly plan matches with the current day and if the max run per day specified was not reached.
The last feature is useful to perform recurring activities as backups, report creations, emails sending and any other tasks you want to perform not based on time but as example when you shutdown your Mac and only in the days you specify
The user can select which action to perform when the task is launched • Launch an application or a document • Opening different type of URLs • Insert a message into the log • Executing unix commands directly from Cronette • Copy a file or a folder • Move a file or a folder Cronette will launch the tasks in background when scheduled. No further actions required.
