Cronette it's a software to specify tasks to be launched automatically by the Mac.All the tasks inside Cronette are represented in a document table. The task is visualized in a master and details interface (the well know layout used in a multitude of Mac software, the user selects the task in the master table and he can see and edit details visualized under the table)
It can be used on unattended Mac Servers or also on regular Mac workstations for tasks to execute during the night or for recurring tasks to be performed on a regular basis.
( SEE ALL OUR APPS. WE HAVE 25 APPS HERE ON THE APP STORE! )
Cronette provides different type of launch tasks and any task can be specified to launch different type of execution.
How it works in details:
User can insert in a document how many tasks he likes
User can assign to a task a name and a note to recognize it
The user can select for a task to run, different time plan type:
Daily: running at any day
Weekly: specifying which day of any week to run
Monthly: specifying which day of any month to run
Yearly: specifying month and day to run
Up to ten different time to run in the days of the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly plan
To run at the document opening, if the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly plan matches with the current day and if the max run per day specified was not reached.
The last feature is useful to perform recurring activities as backups, report creations, emails sending and any other tasks you want to perform not based on time but as example when you shutdown your Mac and only in the days you specify
The user can select which action to perform when the task is launched
Select a document or a application or a script to launch using a selection dialog, as example creating backup archives with DMG Master
Opening different type of URLs
Execute different actions such as restarting, shutting down, sleeping or just sending a message to the log
Executing unix commands directly from Cronette
Cronette will launch the tasks in background when scheduled. No further actions required.

Shows the chronological schedule for all the tasks combined, inside a user selected time interval. The user can watch the future...

It's document based, allowing to have different tasks grouped in separate documents set
Can operate Cronette as a Utility tool simply using just one document and having it opened at startup without further actions (preference option)
