There are two options for running EasyMorph projects on a schedule:
EasyMorph Launcher is a complementary application that is included with EasyMorph Desktop. It is installed automatically when the Desktop is installed, starts on Windows start, and resides in the system tray. When EasyMorph projects are executed in the Launcher, they use the same in-memory engine, connector repository, and license key as the Desktop.
The Launcher operates with tasks that run EasyMorph projects either on a schedule, or on demand. Every task can be configured individually, thus allowing running a project with different parameters, with a single mouse click. The Launcher is intended to automate frequent routine operations and reduce manual work. Note that in the free edition scheduling is not available, but the Launcher can still be used to run projects manually.
The Server runs projects on schedule in unattended mode. Unlike the Launcher, it works as a standalone Windows service and doesn't require a user to be always logged in. The Server has all the available schedules of the Launcher plus the Monthly schedule. Also, Server tasks can be triggered programmatically using the Server's REST API.
