Public Holidays

Post by Wizard1 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 6:20 am

How cool would it be if you could input public holidays (called bank holidays in UK and probably other names in other countries?) and have a schedule not try to run on this day, as in a lot of cases the office is closed and PC's shutdown. I hate having and seeing the errors on return from a general holiday. Obviously this would need to be switched on or off.

I note that 2BrightSparks do not answer to the forum, can I assume they at least read the forum?

Hi,

Note that we do not have a scheduler in SyncBack. We rely on Windows Task Scheduler (WTS) to trigger our program on the scheduled date/time to run the tasks. When you create a Schedule within a profile, we are only providing a drill-down into the Windows Task Scheduler interface through our program settings interface to facilitate SyncBack users in the creation and configuration of a Scheduled Tasks.

Therefore, SyncBack > When > Edit Schedule settings page display options that are supported by the Windows Task Scheduler. Since there is no option in the task scheduler to input public holidays, its not supported in SyncBack.

Thank you for your understanding.

Gee what a pity, you must admit it would be a nice feature to have this available, especially for someone like me, that likes everything in place and seeing the errors after a public holiday is messy and in my case takes a week to clear. Maybe its time to build your own scheduler? :D
