Scheduling and Automation Tools

An important tool on the website is the Tasks page. The easiest way to reach the Tasks page is by going to the “Account” tab once you have logged in to codeREADr. From there, continue to the “My Tasks” tab on that page.

One of the main benefits of this tool is to help you automate with scheduled tasks that run in the background. There’s a section for each task type under the “Create Tasks” heading. See the screenshot below.

What is the minimum interval between task instances? (*)

Minimum intervals apply to Export Scans and Postback Scans (a developer tool). An ‘instance’ is an attempt to execute a scheduled task at a specified interval. The minimum instance interval is every 10 minutes. The minimum should only be used if necessary.

How many tasks can I schedule? (*)

You have no limit on the number of tasks you can create but for Export Scans and for Postback Scans there are ‘instance’ limits are based on your paid plan. For example, with the 25-Device Plan you can schedule up to three (3) Export Scans tasks every 10 minutes (144/day x 3 tasks = 432 total instances).

Free Plan @ 12 instances/day
1-Device Plan @ 48 instances/day
5-Device Plan @  144 instances/day
10-Device Plan @ 288 instances/day
25-Device Plan @ 576 instances/day

(*) These limits are based on typical usage.  Best practices assume you will filter your export tasks to some period, such as the last 30 days of scans (or the last week, day, or hour of scans).  If you need shorter intervals or more instances, please contact
