Add Scheduled Tasks To Minecraft Server


Our control panel at Apex makes it easy to automate commands for your server such as statements and many other commonly utilized server commands. Scheduling tasks allows you to automate a great number server management actions like backing up, restarting, or broadcasting messages by utilizing commands.

To access your Tasks you need to navigate over the the left side menu under the server details page and select Scheduled Tasks. You will then be directed to the task list with several tasks already issued for your server (backup, restart, and restart warning).

To create a new task, navigate over to the left side menu once more and select New Task.

Creating a new Scheduled Task

Name
Start off by giving your task a name. In most cases it’s convenient to name it with the action it will perform.

Status
You can then change the status of the task to “Scheduled” which will enable the task or “Paused” to temporarily disable it.

Scheduled Time
Then you will need to set up when it will first run by clicking the Scheduled Time input to access the calendar and time selector.

Interval
You can then set the task to run at an interval after the initial Scheduled Time, otherwise it will only run once.

Response
Send a whispered message in response to running the command to the player who issued it.

Command
This defines what Command will be executed at the respective scheduled time and set interval. You select from a list of pre-generated commands or create your own command.

Arguments
If your command has any additional arguments i.e the say command, you can add the text you want to say here.

Run For
This sets the task to run only if a certain player is on or always if “Server” is selected.

Once satisfied, click create and the task will be placed in queue to be processed. This is all available through your control panel interface.
