A set of wizards is incorporated into the product to simplify complex operations such as copying of documents, lists or sites. For ease of use, wizards are commonly shared across different products lines. Depending on the product and use case, the wizards may be preceded by additional windows, but the core will remain consistent throughout.

Scheduler Wizard

This interface is generated when a user attempts to schedule a process. The scheduler can be launched in two ways:

1.The "Schedule" button found at the bottom of the Copy/Backup/Migration wizards.

2.Alternately, in order to see the tasks that are scheduled and perform various actions on these tasks, you can click the The "Scheduler" button in the "View" tab in the ribbon.

Recurrence Screen

This screen is displayed after launching a scheduling operation from the  button in the Copy/Backup/Migration wizards.

Here, you can rename your task as well as select the recurrence. You have the option to set the task for One time, daily, weekly, and monthly recurrences. Under advanced settings you can choose to "repeat task every" and then specify the time frame (the time frame options will perform the scheduled task more often than daily with 10 hours as the largest time increment that can be selected).
