For Linux

For Windows
1. Make sure you logged on as an administrator or you have the same access as an administrator.
2. Start->Control Panel->System and Security->Administrative Tools->Task Scheduler
3. Action->Create Basic Task->Type a name and Click Next
4. Follow through the wizard.

I'm interested in a replacement for cron which would allow me to run various cron jobs on demand, and mark them as having been run, so they won't be run again from the schedule.

I noticed whenjobs, which looks like it may do the job. The documentation for whenjobs says that it is obsolete and has been replaced by goaljobs.

Has anyone tried out whenjobs or goaljobs.

I'm trying to figure out a way to insert a timestamp into a log file I'm creating for a cron job:

/usr/bin/rsync -v --min-size=1 -rlpgo -O --inplace /home/myuser/Get*
root@xx.x.xx.xx:/mnt/yyy/zzz/compass 2>&1 >& /tmp/rsync_user.log

I've googled this but all I could find are tips on how to add the time and date to the name of the log file itself, not to the contents of the log.

Any tips or pointers would be great.
