Renaming Tak Files

Postby Amer786 » Thu Aug 25, 2011 10:23 am

I have 4 differed Jobs scheduled: Incremental backup, Differential Backup, Full Backup and Cleanup. The task file for for each of these jobs are as follows: b4a_laptop.job, b4a_laptop.job(1), b4a_laptop.job(2), b4a_laptop.job(3). My question is, how can I rename these jobs so that they dont have those annoying brackets ie how do I assign custom names to jobs?

Hi,

At this moment, you cannot change the name of the scheduled tasks.

Hi,

You still cannot change the scheduled task name in the current version.

Hi tqmbill,

it's not a problem of B4A, but it's a lack of windows. You can not rename scheduled tasks in windows directly. You have to do some more steps: Export task into xml file; delete task in scheduler; import task via xml with a new name.

For detailed description read this: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/rename-sc ... -scheduler

@Support: Another try to implement this feature? 8-)
