What Are Schedules?
Schedules are ways to automate certain tasks through the Duck Panel such as starting/stopping/restarting the server, executing commands or even creating a backup.
The schedule system and our nodes use the UTC time zone. Please keep this in mind while creating schedules. You can use this website to convert time zones.
Creating A Schedule
First, go to your Duck Panel and select Schedules on the navigation bar.
The main page will list all of our current schedules. To add a schedule, click the Create New button. Enter a name for your schedule and select when and how often you would like it to run. For advanced users familiar with cron syntax, click the Advanced tab.
Once created, click the schedule on the main list to view the tasks. Then, click New Task to add your first schedule action.
The final section is what will be sent as a command or as a power action. Commands should be used without the
/. You can also choose a power action or create a backup.
Here you can also specify a delay. This is useful if you would like to send a timed warning to your players before a restart for example.
