Automate routine tasks and get on with the real action

In every business app, there is always the need to automate a few actions. Some actions may be triggered by user input while some others like reminders, reports etc need to triggered at certain times - fixed or otherwise. With Zoho Creator Scheduler setting up such automated tasks is just a few clicks away.

Form Schedules

You can configure actions to be executed based on any date/date-time field in your Form using Form Schedules. The value that is entered for the chosen date field in each record is taken as the date on which the schedule action is to be executed. The actions can be defined using Deluge Script. It can range from setting up reminder emails, adding or deleting records or even changing the values of the other fields for a specific record. These actions can be repeated for a pre defined period of time and can also be stopped on/before or after a particular date. Learn how to configure a Form Schedule

Report Schedules

Scheduling periodic reports of data that has been added to your forms is no big deal either. And what's more, you can also choose a subject and an email content to go with it. We have tweaked the send mail task in Deluge, made it simpler and more enhanced for this type of Schedule. The data will be attached as a pdf to the email and will be sent to you. You can choose the start date and the frequency at which these reports are to be sent to you. The reports can be configured to be sent daily, weekly - on a particular day of the week, monthly - on a specific day of the month or even yearly. Learn how to configure a Report Schedule

Custom Schedules

A custom Schedule is Zoho Creator's way of letting you run amok with all your coding expertise. You can write a full fledged set of logical actions to be executed in your application across forms or even schedule reports of data to be sent all in one place. That's just what a Custom Schedule is all about- running a predefined set of actions at a specified time and repeat them periodically if need be. The Deluge Script builder is your playground and you can build all that you can think of! Learn how to configure a Custom Schedule
