The "Schedule" panel

    When you click on the "Schedule" tab, a panel appears with controls for configuring automatic events that run at regular intervals.

    You can set up any number of events which run on a variety of schedules, from minutes to weeks. Each event can switch a different set of outlets, or start up/shut down the computer. This allows you to automate unattended tasks without leaving the computer running full time.

Event list

    The main part of the "Schedule" panel is a list showing all of the events you have defined.

    You can enable and disable scheduled events by checking and unchecking the "On" box next to each event.

    You can customize the appearance of this list in several ways:
    To sort the list by a chosen column, click on its header. Click again to reverse the direction of the sorting.
     
    To move a column, drag its header to the left or right.
     
    To resize a column, drag the right edge of its header.

Editing buttons

    The buttons at the bottom of the list let you manage your events:
    Click the New Event... button to define a new event. The event editor dialog box will appear.
     
    Select an event in the list and click the Edit... button (or double-click on the event) to edit it. The event editor dialog box will appear.
     
    Select an event in the list and click the Delete button to delete it.

    Tip: You can also hold down the "control" key and select an event (or right-click using a two-button mouse). This opens a "contextual menu" that shows the same commands as the editing buttons.
