The module "Scheduler" is part of every VisionR installation. It is used to create scheduled tasks. A scheduled task is run automatically by the VisionR Server process at a predefined time (e.g. every hour, daily, every Monday, once in a month etc.). Running a task trigger the execution of a VisionR Script. This script can contain a description of different system interactions: sending an e-mail, synchronising person data with other databases, checking of contract expiration etc.
Using the scheduler functions in VisionR makes interface programming for data exchange with other databases extremely easy.
