Editors' reviewThis powerful task scheduler assumes the burden of repetitive computer tasks, though the program name isn't indicative of the required user level. Newbie Task Manager's functional interface comes with a fairly comprehensive listing of actions to automate. These preloaded sample tasks cover routine operations such as starting and stopping programs, auto log-ons/log-offs, opening the CD-ROM, initiating system backups, and triggering e-mails and reminder messages. Events can be set up to run by a specific time or in the event of a specific action such as a hot key press or at system log-on. Advanced users can effortlessly create new tasks, schedule running times, define other action parameters, and password-protect staged events. Although inexperienced users can feel their ways around Newbie Task Manager, considering the preloaded tasks mentioned we think the program could benefit from a task-creation wizard to complement its Help file. Power users with programming expertise and cyclic system tasks will benefit the most from this effective application.
Newbie Task Manager is a flexible, powerful, multi-purpose task scheduler. The scheduled tasks can be executed at specified times or intervals. They can also be triggered by specified system events. Task functions include Macro recording and playback; starting, stopping, applications; logoff, shutdown, restart of computer; sending network messages and emails; local or network file I/O operations such as file copy, archive and delete; FTP, HTTP and ICQ access; plus a lot more. Advanced features of Newbie Task Manager allows you to specify the program or task launch time more precisely. Your tasks can be executed one time, periodically or by extended time format. It can run as a Windows service so that it is possible to execute tasks even if nobody is logged on in Windows. This assures you that tasks will be executed.
