Editors' Review

VisualCron is a powerful program that allows users to automate a variety of computer functions. The program's many options are well-organized, making it easy to set up and run even complex tasks.

VisualCron's interface is attractive and intuitive. Users create a new job and then customize everything about it: what task or tasks it performs, what triggers it, what conditions it runs under, and how users are notified. Users move through a tabbed window for each job, choosing the proper settings. All of the jobs are listed neatly on the program's main screen, with other options displayed in a tabbed, well-labeled menu above. A built-in Help file is well-written and thorough, providing clear explanations of all the program's functions. The program's features are numerous, and it allows users to do everything from restarting their computers and running macros to copying files and executing SQL commands. The ability to set multiple tasks within one job means that users can create entire sequences of automated events. The program includes both a client and a server; the client includes the program's interface, while the server automatically runs the processes. When the server is turned off or not installed, jobs can be run manually. This flexibility allows users to create a variety of network configurations.

VisualCron has a 45-day trial period, which is plenty of time for evaluation. It installs desktop icons without asking, but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users who have a need to automate computer processes.

    "Unique, solid, eminently useful software."

    July 10, 2010   |   By mwoffenden

    Version: VisualCron 5.6.2

    Pros

    User interface, numerous options, tight integration with operating system, API capability, vendor support, integrated online help

    Cons

    We were not able to get the remote connection to the server working right.

    Summary

    VC is one of those rare brilliant programs that has an endless number of uses. We discovered it over 2 years ago, and have found it to be a central tool for managing our Windows environment.

    The latest UI facelift has made VC even more appealing.

    It's a tool that is fun to use, while it performs very serious and mission critical tasks.

    We simply wouldn't be without it.

    "Refreshing replacement for Windows Task Scheduler"

    March 14, 2007   |   By InformationResultsCorp

    Version: VisualCron 4.4.6

    Pros

    Stunning user interface, very flexible, easy integration with email for notification. Numerous options provide a rich set of scheduling capabilities. Integrates many types of jobs (Windows, SQL etc) into a single platform.

    Cons

    The User Guide is hard to navigate and there is no integrated help system. (If it had this I'd give it 5 stars.)
