Hi all, 

I want to check if I can schedule ArcGIS Pro Tasks for running at a specific time.
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Tasks are primarily designed for interactive usage by end users to run a series of tools in a designed workflow where they can customize parameters and see the intermediate outputs before running the next step/tool.

ModelBuilder, on the other hand, is designed for automation, batch processing, and scheduling. As ModelBuilder is essentially a python script in a geoprocessing toolbox, it can be set to run automatically at regular schedules using the Geoprocessing Scheduler:

The concepts of connecting tools in Tasks and ModelBuilder to become  a workflow is essentially the same. Would it be possible for you to use ModelBuilder instead and scheduled the tool to run?

Best regards,
Kanin

Hello- Can you confirm if you can use Task Scheduler to enable/disable a Scheduled Model Builder task? 

We have a model builder that we scheduled using the steps discussed in the Schedule geoprocessing tools—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

I was trying to stop the tool from running for a day or two and did so using via the Windows Task Scheduler interface, marking the task from "Ready" to  "Disabled".  My question is, do we also have to stop/pause the schedule over in ArcPro as well?  I was looking through this documentation, but am not seeing much about how Task Scheduler and ArcPro interact when it comes to disabling or enabling schedules. 

Thank you in advance,

Vanessa

Hi, I'm trying to run a scheduled task (a modelBuilder that I built) and ArcGIS crashes when it starts its execution. When I run the task myself, the same modelBuilder works fine. Can you help?
