Types of cron schedulers

The plugin supports two different schedule types:

  1. WordPress Cron: Upon a visit, WordPress Cron will check to see if the time/date is later than the scheduled event/s, and if it is– it will fire those events.
    • schedules your job at the specified time. 
    • is dependent on your website visitors.
  2. Server Cron: You may need to trigger the URL every minute depending on the volume of data to be processed.You can use this option :
    • to generate a unique URL that can be added to your system in order to trigger the events. 
    • if you have a separate system to trigger the scheduled events.

File name : Specify a filename for the exported file(the contents of this file will be overwritten for every export). If left blank the system generates a default name(a new filename is generated for every export).

Schedule the time at which you want the automatic export to occur and also give other necessary information for the export.
