Manually executing a task ¶
As mentioned above, it is possible to manually execute one or more registered tasks from the BE module. When the selected tasks have finished running, feedback is given about success or failure of each task’s run. There’s one important thing to note: if the task was overdue, a new execution date will be calculated. If the task was not overdue, the previously calculated next execution date stays.
A single task can be started by pressing the appropriate button in the row of the task. Multiple tasks can be started by selecting the checkboxes on the left side of the task row and then pressing the appropriate button beneath the task list.
There is one button for directly starting the task and another button for starting the task with the next cron job.
