Scheduled task that runs periodically

Today Morning I had been given a task to add a scheduled task in Windows 2012 server, that should be executed periodically. I was successful to add a task, but couldn’t find a solution to schedule it periodically till I tried Googling.. Sharing this bit of information for someone who may look at it while they have this same problem..

  • Starting from the Create Task click:

Create Task

  • Give the task, a name.

Task Name

  • Add a new item in Actions wizard that will start a program or execute a script, with any arguments or parameters, if required.

New Action


  • Now add a trigger where you can configure whether it needs to be run as a scheduled task or on an event. Click OK twice.

New Trigger


Now you’re ready to go!!
