Proventeq Migration Accelerator can be scheduled to execute all tasks within a workspace using Windows task scheduler.

Following steps need to be performed for creating a scheduled task for PMA:

  2. Go to Action -> Create Tasks
  3. Enter below mentioned details:
    1. General Tab
      • Give proper Name
      • Tick 'Run with highest privileges' option from Security Options pane


    2. Trigger Tab
      • Click on New and add appropriate Settings and make sure you tick 'Enabled' option from Advanced Settings pane


    3. Actions Tab
      • Click on New and select 'Start a Program' from Action dropdown
      • Browser and add PMA executable file (.exe) from desktop or installation
      • Add arguments = Sync /WorkspaceID=@WID /MigrationTaskId=@TaskID. The Workspace ID is displayed on the ribbon Title, alongside the workspace name in PMA and MigrationTaskId is Migration Task Number(s).
      • For the “Start in”, enter the path to the folder where PMA is installed. Example: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Proventeq\Proventeq Migration Accelerator\” See below screenshot for details.


    4. Click on “OK” - and save settings and user should be able to see the newly created scheduled task under 'Task Scheduler Library'..

      Note: You should make sure that Proventeq Migration Accelerator is closed and that you have entered correct Workspace ID.


      User can end, disable or delete the Scheduled task as per request.


When the task is ready to 'Run', it launches Proventeq Migration Accelerator which will then run in scheduled mode. The following screen is displayed when PMA is running in scheduled mode. The user cannot perform any other tasks in PMA when the application is running in scheduled mode. Clicking on “Exit” will abort the execution of scheduled tasks and close the application.




Once the task execution finishes, the message 'Scheduled Task(s) Execution Completed' is displayed on the modal window. The status of the tasks execution can be verified by exiting the scheduled mode and re-launching the application in normal mode.
