Task scheduler is a feature of Windows that help us perform a recurring task.

1. Open Task Scheduler. (by typing in the Start menu)
2. Right click the Event Viewer Tasks and Select Create Task.


3. Under General Tab, provide a name and description and leave other options as default. However they can be configured as required.


4. Under Triggers Tab, click on Create New.

Select “On an Event” value from the Begin the Task dropdown.


5. Select Custom and click on new event filter button.

6. Select the required Event Level.


8. From the Event Sources dropdown select all BizTalk, BAM, Orchestration, EDI Event Sources.

Some of the sources are as below.

9. Under Actions Tab, Select the appropriate option – For example, display a message or send a mail (if this option is chosen, you have to provide SMTP details).

10. Based on the selected options, fill the appropriate details.

11. Select the appropriate settings required under settings tab.
