			<span class="rconfigNameStyle">rConfig</span> utilizes the Linux CRON daemon to run scheduled tasks. Currently you can create a two types of scheduled tasks. 
			<ul>
				<li>Download Configurations</li>
				<li>Run Reports</li>
			</ul>
			
		</p>
		<div class="break"></div>
		<p>
			<b>Download Configurations</b><br/>
			When you select to create a scheduled task to Download Configurations, you will choose the category of devices or the individual devices themselves of which to run the pre-configured set of commands against. You will choose the recurring times which to run the script. You can also select to email a connectivity report.

			<b>Run Reports</b><br/>

			<span class="rconfigNameStyle">rConfig</span> version <b><?php echo $config_version; ?></b> only has a single report to run. This is expected to grow in future versions. <br/>The <b>Configuration Comparison</b> report allows you to compare downloaded outputs. In this report, the latest downloaded output is compared to the version just before it by date. i.e A <b>show run</b> downloaded today, will be compared against a <b>show run</b> for yesterday. Equally, if the latest <b>show run</b> was last Friday, and the most recent before this was the Friday before, these files are compared.
		</p>
		<div class="break"></div>
		<p>
			The report iterates over a category when run. The selected command is compared for all devices in a selected category. The output is saved to a file and can be viewed in the reports section, and/or emailed per the email settings also.
