Copy from the help text (bottom right pane) when clicking in "Scheduling parameters":

A command-line type of setting and parameters for running scheduled tasks. The setting supports the following parameters:  
Time and date parameters:  
Execution time: either "/tHH:MM" or "/tiMINUTES". HH:MM specifies the exact start time (24-hour local time) for running the task. MINUTES specifies the number of minutes the system must remain idle for the task to start. Note that you can use the "/ti" parameter on its own or as an additional condition for the "/t" parameter.  
Randomization interval: "/trHH:MM, where HH:MM specifies the maximum time that can elapse from the execution time before running the task.  
Begin date: "/bYYYY-MM-DD", where YYYY-MM-DD specifies the first date for running the task. If you do no specify this parameter, the task applies as soon as the policy is distributed and received.   End date: "/eYYYY-MM-DD", where YYYY-MM-DD specifies the last date for running the task.  
Repeat mode: "/rREPEAT_MODE" specifies how often the task is run. REPEAT_MODE must be: "once" (task is run only once), "daily", "weekly", or "monthly". If you do no specify this parameter, the task is run daily.  
Run day: "/sDAY". If you use weekly or monthly repeat mode, DAY is the number of the day for running the task. If you do no specify this parameter, weekly tasks are run on Mondays and monthly tasks on the first day of the month.  
You can also specify multiple days with the /s parameter. For example, /s1 /s5 to run a weekly task on every Monday and Friday. Similarly, /s1 /s15 /s30 to run a monthly task on the 1st, 15th, and 30th day of the month.  
Execute when available: "/asap". Run the task as soon as possible if the scheduled time has passed and the task has not yet run. This option is available in F-Secure Anti-Virus versions 14.00 and later.  
Operation-based parameters:   Run the task at startup: "/a". Run the task at logon: "/l". Run the task only once: "/o".   If you use an operation-based parameter, all time and date parameters are ignored. If you specify multiple operation-based parameters, only the first applies.  
Examples:  
"/t18:00 /b2017-10-16 /rweekly" : run the task weekly starting on Oct 16, 2017 (Monday), at 18:00.  
"/t18:00 /ti30 /b2017-10-16 /rweekly": same as the previous example, but run the task only if the system has been idle for 30 minutes.  
"/ti30" : run the task daily after the computer has been idle for 30 minutes.  
"/t07:00 /rmonthly /s10 /s20 /s30": run the task monthly at 07:00 on each 10th, 20th and 30th day of the month.  
"/t07:00 /tr03:00 /rmonthly /s10 /s20 /s30": run the task monthly between 07:00 and 10:00 (3-hour randomization interval) on each 10th, 20th and 30th day of the month.

 May I add, that it has been discussed here several times that scheduled scanning is an old fationed, energery-wasting and time consuming senseless process, with an efficency of 60%-80% detection rate only.

Hello harish1982,

 

Please, note, that scheduled tasks created in Policy Manager Console (PMC) are not visible in local client UI. Local UI provides a possibility for local user to create personal scheduled tasks.

To check, if the Scheduled task reaches the client and is configured properly, you can open Task Scheduler with the admin rights on the client machine, and check for the scheduled task with the name you had specified in PMC in the root of Task Scheduler Library folder.

Few notes.

- Do not use quotes for Scheduling parameters in PMC. /t12:00 is correct, "/t12:00" is wrong.

- If you are not specifying the exact day of week, default day will be taken in use (Monday, if i'm not mistaken).

/bYYYY-MM-DD should be used always regardless of your local system format.

 

Best regards,

Vad
