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

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?
