Scheduling Tasks

With the PRO version‘s Scheduler feature you can schedule your tasks to be performed at certain times during certain days.

It is common for Internet service providers to restrict the amount of bandwidth that you can use during the day but allow unlimited usage overnight. The idea is that most people and businesses are using the connection during the day, but there’s excess capacity at night when people aren’t using their connection. This is one case where Scheduler will come in particularly handy.

Configuring Scheduler preferences

To configure Scheduler, do the following:

  1. Open Preferences and switch to the Scheduler tab:folx-scheduler-300x261
  2. Make sure the Enable Scheduler option is checked.
  3. In On scheduler stop tell Folx what to do upon finishing your downloads: exit, shut down your Mac, put it into sleep mode, or do nothing.
  4. Select the days of the week and the hours to run the tasks on.The grid represents a single week, with the 7 columns being its days and the 24 rows – the hours of the day. You set the schedule by clicking the respective cells, one or multiple times. With each click the color of the cell will change to indicate the mode: Seeding, Downloading, Active (seeding and downloading) or Off.
Note: The schedule will only apply to the tasks for which the start type was set to Scheduled.
