Server schedules can perform FileMaker scripts, system scripts or create live backups of your database.
WHen you use the server admin console to set up the schedule, you'll find you have options for performing a script, the script parameter (parameter's must be constents in schedules) and the account name and password to be used when the script is run.
Server scheduled scripts run from a host perspective so changes to values in global fields will be retained.
Not all script steps work in a server schedule so you should check a script for compatibility. Even compatible scripts such as import and export records have significant limitations not found when run from a client of the database.
Thanks. I'll look into this some more.
