SolidWorks Task Scheduler

The SolidWorks Task Scheduler lets you set up tasks to perform at a future time. For example, if you need to perform a resource-intensive task such as rebuilding a large assembly, you can use SolidWorks Task Scheduler to perform the job at off-peak hours. You can schedule a task to be performed only once or on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. SolidWorks Task Scheduler runs separately from the SolidWorks application.

You can use SolidWorks Task Scheduler with any SolidWorks license to convert documents to the latest SolidWorks version and to dissect documents. To schedule most other tasks, you must have a SolidWorks Professional, SolidWorks Premium, or SolidWorks Office license.

Note: The Convert Files task of SolidWorks Task Scheduler replaces the Conversion Wizard.

To open SolidWorks Task Scheduler:

  • In Windows, from the program list on your Start Menu, click SolidWorks <version>, SolidWorks Tools, SolidWorks Task Scheduler.

To access SolidWorks Task Scheduler Help, from the SolidWorks Task Scheduler, click Help, SolidWorks Task Scheduler Help Topics.
