What programs, softwares or coding languages to schedule jobs or executable programs. It would be great if this software can provide FTP access to extract data from a CRM also.

Schedule jobs or executable programs on a daily, monthly, or weekly basis?

  • operating system: windows
  • task is to run a program that I build either via excel vba, vb.net or python executable
  • Schedule it to run daily, weekly or monthly by itself.

    What operating system? All *nix variants - Linux, OS X, the BSDs, the commercial licensed Unix systems etc - have a cron implementation. Windows had a task scheduler last time I used it, but that was 18 years ago... As to actually what script/program/whatever to schedule to run via whatever method, that comes down to what operating system and what task?

What is the most efficient way ? Is window scheduler best or other software or using a programming language to build it from scratch ?

    "What is the most efficient way?" – Please note this site is about recommending software, not assets or resources like howtos, manuals/tutorials, etc. So please understand we read your question just that way: asking us to recommend you a software that fits your requirements. As a scheduler doesn't "provide FTP access" anyway, the Windows scheduler should fit, as @ivanivan already pointed out.

  • @Izzy - Ok sorry about that, thanks for pointing it out. I think I might just try window scheduler. How about goanywhere software. I used it before but never gotten to see or know all of it's function and abilities.
