Creating scheduled tasks
Letting SEO tasks be completed automatically at a time you choose
Rank Tracker lets you update projects, publish reports or export data even when you are not at your desk. All you need to do is create tasks for jobs you would like to automate. Please go to Preferences -> Scheduler, click Add, and follow instructions for your type of task.
Step 1: choose task type
Select the type of task you would like to automate.
Step 2: choose projects
Choose a project (or a group of 3-5 projects) to include into the task.
If a project you need does not appear on the list, please use the Add project command and specify a path to the file on your hard drive. Only saved projects can be selected.
Step 3: set start time and recurrence
Please set timing and recurrence rules for the new scheduled task. Also please indicate whether missed/delayed tasks should be automatically re-run.
Step 4: give name to task
Please choose a name for the task. Use a descriptive name that explains what the task does, e.g. Weekly rankings update for XYZ. When the number of scheduled tasks grows, descriptive names will make it easier for you to navigate through the list.
Please hit Finish to save the task or hit Cancel to start over. Once the task has been created, it will appear on your list of scheduled tasks under Preferences -> Scheduler.
Please don’t forget to click OK when done. It will close Scheduler and notify Rank Tracker that the scheduled activities are ready and can be started in their due time.
