Scheduled imports

Create scheduled imports

You can schedule an import to recur according to a pre-defined schedule. To begin, simply click Schedule import to repeat from the final step of the task import.

All the recipient, destination, and task data from the import will be saved for use in the scheduled import. Complete Before and Complete After timestamps will also be saved, however the date used will necessarily be changed to the date of the scheduled import.

Running Scheduled Imports

Once created, a scheduled import will run according to its schedule until deleted. Each run, the owner will be sent a confirmation of the scheduled import and its results:

The scheduled action <NAME> completed successfully.
This action will run again on <DATE & TIME>.

Tasks created: 202
Assigned: 202
Team assigned: 0
Error count: 0 

 

Error Handling

Tasks not assigned to expected driver: Verify the driver's name on the import file matches the driver's name in the dashboard. If mismatched, correct the driver's name in the dashboard to match the import file, or delete the scheduled import and create a new one with the updated file.

Email confirmation indicates "completeBefore must not be before creation time": Verify the complete before times listed in the import file occur after the import is scheduled to run.

Scheduled import has a status of "Stopped" in the dashboard: Verify that an owner is defined for the scheduled import, and that your billing status is current.
