Once you have created your jobs, you may assign them to run either on schedule or manually.
To assign a job to a user/device, first ensure that their runner has been authorized. For details on this process, click here.
Next, click on the job you would like to assign a user/device to run.
On the job page, you will have the ability to assign the job to an individual runner, an individual user, a user group, an individual computer, or a computer group.
To assign a batch of users, user groups and/or computer groups are recommended.
As an example, the following use case will detail the steps of assigning a computer to a job.
Click on "Computers" under "Assign Job To...".
A prompt will appear that will allow you to select the computers you would like to assign.
If automatic scheduling has already been set, the jobs will run automatically on the devices after assignment. If not, you can configure automatic scheduling now for the job.
To do so, click on "EDIT JOB" and navigate to the "Auto" tab.
In the Auto tab you will be able to specify the scheduling that best fits your needs for this job.
On File Change
Monitors source and/or destination for changes and replicates them in real-time.
On File Change supports the following file systems:
- Windows File System and local disks (except root folder)
- Windows shares (except some faulty NAS shares that do not report changes)
- Mac file system and local disks
- Any of the above file systems remotely accessed via the GSTP protocol using GS Connect.
On File Change Delay option:
Wait this many seconds since the last detected change before starting the Analyze and Sync.
Note: If changes occur during Analyze/Sync, they are still detected and sent to the next Analyze interval.
On Folders Connect
Analyze and Sync this job when specified location is made available.
By design, GoodSync checks every 3 minutes for the status of the left and right folders to determine availability.
The following events speed up detection of connected/disconnected status:
* Insertion or Ejection of Portable Volume: detachable folders may connect or disconnect.
* Network Connect or Disconnect: FTP, SFTP, DAV folders may connect or disconnect.
Should not be used together with On File Change mode, as OFC overrides it.
Periodically (On Timer)
Analyze and Sync this job periodically, every HH hours and MM minutes.
Analyze and Sync this job on a specified schedule.
These time unit values can be set:
- Minute (0 to 59),
- Hour (0 to 23),
- Day of Month (1 to 31),
- Month (1 to 12),
- Day of Week (0=Sun to 6=Sat)
Note: If a field is left empty, it will run for every unit value of its range.
If your computer goes to Sleep/Standby, GoodSync can wake it up for the On Schedule job. Ensure that 'Control Panel -> Power Options -> Change Plan Settings -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> Sleep -> Allow Wake Timers' is enabled.
You may also perform a manual job run by clicking on "RUN JOB" at top-right.
This will allow you to select the desired runner, and run the job on that particular device.
The result of any job runs may then be viewed below, in the "Job Runs History" section.
