Selecting a task
Note  The following information is for server administrators and group administrators.
Back Up Databases
Back up one or more hosted databases. See Scheduling database backups.
Send Message
Send a message to one or more FileMaker clients connected to a hosted database. The message appears in a dialog box within FileMaker Pro. See Sending scheduled messages to clients of hosted databases.
System-level Script
Run a system-level script file—such as a Windows batch command, VBScript, or macOS shell script (bash, Perl, Python)—that is in the Scripts folder.
Place system-level script files in the Scripts folder before starting the Schedule assistant:
Windows: [drive]:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Scripts\
If FileMaker Server is installed in a non-default location, the beginning portion of the default path shown above, \Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server, is replaced with the path that was specified during installation. For example: \My_Path\Data\Scripts\
macOS: /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Scripts/
FileMaker Script
Run a FileMaker script defined in a hosted database. See Running FileMaker scripts.
Script Sequence
Run optional system-level script files before and after a FileMaker script runs. You can also run optional pre-processing and post-processing system-level scripts before and after a FileMaker script in a Script Sequence scheduled task. See Creating Script Sequence tasks.
Verify Databases
Verify the integrity of one or more hosted databases. See Verifying the integrity of databases.
Note  If you are a group administrator, your server administrator must configure your administrator group to allow you to select each type of task to perform on the databases in your group folder. For more information, contact your server administrator.
