An all-around scheduling utility.

Overview

Scheduler is a utility that allows you to schedule reminders, application and AppleScript applet launches, and the automatic download of Web pages or files using your favorite Web browser.

Note: You must register Scheduler to obtain a free license code after 30 days.

What's new in Scheduler

Version 7.6:
  • Added macOS Big Sur support.
  • A nasty bug that prevented the installation of Scheduler on new computers without previous versions installed has been fixed. This bug caused a fatal error due to lack of admin privileges, preventing all attempts to install the software.
  • Users can now schedule the execution of shell and python scripts. Please read the documentation to know how to pass arguments to these scripts.
  • Added additional options for delaying the execution of events at startup.
  • The preferences window can now be resized, which was essential to support the new GUI metrics on Big Sur.
  • Any changes in hotkey combinations are now recognized immediately.
  • Fized several bugs related to warning options on the preferences window that could cause a crash.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the skipping of scheduled events due to a malformed comparison of URLs.

Sure, there are a lot of ways to schedule events on your Mac. You could launch scripts with cron, et cetera, but then work in features like deferred execution, convenient task management, and you will have written this application. Looking forward to the continued development of version 6. Aready an improvement for Mountain Lion. Plus, it's free. Definitely give it a try.

RANDYHARRIS: I think you have missed out on the joys of cron. cron is a scheduling utility that has been built into Mac OS X from the very first version. The only thing keeping a lot of people from using cron, is the fact that it's a command line application. However, over the years there have been graphical front ends to cron for Mac OS X that provide easier access. Just search for cron on MacUpdate, and you'll find loads of them. I'm not criticising Scheduler, it could quite possibly be capable of things that cron isn't. However, I do think that your statement that the Mac has no scheduling capabilities beyond iCal is misinformed to the point of being erroneous and misleading.

For years Windows has had a feature called "Scheduled Tasks" this offered the ability to schedule events easily in the Windows environment. While you can use iCal for some scheduling tasks, this is not an ideal approach. Scheduler is a great utility which brings the ease and function of Windows Scheduled Tasks to Mac OS X. The program is very simple and easy to use, I've only used it for a day now, but in setting it up and testing it out - it works flawlessly for me. I am so very excited to have stumbled upon this little gem. While it is freeware, I'll be donating a few bucks to support the cause. If I can nitpick, I'd prefer the Scheduler have a look which is more inline with other Mac programs, but it's not a bad interface, and it works well.
