Add scheduler task

First of all please make sure that you have installed and set-up the extension "scheduler" properly. Therefore the "Setup check" is provided in the module "Scheduler".

In module "Scheduler" add a new task, select "Extbase CommandController Task" as "Class", set desired "Frequency" and select "Loginlimit Task: cleanUp" as "CommandController Command".

If clean-up is done through scheduler task, the option "enableCleanUpAtLogin" in extension configuration should be disabled.
