Task Scheduler

I created a task scheduler and made it trigger at 12:00 pm daily but i want it to trigger 5 minute LATER than it triggered yesterday so it would be 12:05 pm at second day and 12:10 pm at third is this possible?

Welcome to the forum, as for your question I honestly don't know.

Can you give us some more details about your set up and what task it is you've set up and why you want it to start 5 minutes later each day ?

With a few more details the experts may be able to help you find a solution.

thank you for welcoming me and i made the task scheduler to run batch file every 12 hour to check up the status of my linked computer.. and that compter will only allow connection at specific time and it wil close up for 12 hour.. so if i make a task to run batch file at 12 pm today it will make connection to that computer and check the status of it and the computer will close up for 12 hour but since there is ping issues and the time it is logged in that computer... when the task runs again after 12 hours at 12 am the computer will reject connection because the last connection was made lets say 12:00:05 pm so to solve the problem i thought id increase the triggered time by 2 - 5 minutes after each time it triggers

sorry if my explanation is bad... and for the reason why i made the linked computer close up for 12 hour is because i want it to stay offline unless for just checking if it's still running/up but because i cant always be physically there to check so i thought i would make automatic system to check and fix it if necessary

Thank you for the added info, hopefully one of the experts will be able to give some indication of whether it's possible or not. If you could also give them the details of what the other computer is running that may help.

Sorry I can't help you but I'm sure one of our excellent members can so keep coming back to check.

I'm not sure how at the moment but it seems to me the batch file itself could delete the existing scheduled task and create a new one that will be launched 5 minutes later. I believe you would use the AT command (enter at /? in a Command Prompt window for info).
