Tasks by Groups

From Main Selection -> Tasks -> By Groups it is possible to enter multiple tasks in one or more groups. You can also see all of the tasks that have been assigned to a particular group.

A single event will activate all the collected tasks within the task group. The tasks will then be executed depending on the number of sms channels available. The remaining tasks will be retained in the execution queue and will be started chronologically.

Up to SEP sesam version 4.4.3 Grolar, it was only possible to deactivate a schedule. As of SEP sesam v. 4.4.3 Grolar, it is also possible to disable a particular task or a whole task group without deleting it permanently and without cancelling all other events related to the same schedule. For details, see Disabling and Enabling Backup Task and Disabling and Enabling Task Group.
