ndschedag Command Line

IT Asset Management (Cloud)
Schedules are created on the central application server, and distributed to inventory beacons from which they are retrieved by managed devices. Managed devices then install the schedules, which are later read by the managed device's scheduling component.
Tip: Listings of scheduled tasks are contextual to the privileges of the credentials running the schedule query. To see a full list of scheduled activities, be certain to choose the Run as administrator option when starting the Windows command window. Even if you are already logged in using an account that is an administrator on the computer, use this option, as Microsoft Windows by default runs some commands with lower privilege levels.
