How to set an automated schedule.

Step 1: Head to https://panel.skynode.pro/ and select the server you want to set the schedule for.


Step 2: Navigate to Server Management -> Configuration -> Schedules


In this guide we're going to be showing you have to make your server restart at 3AM every morning (game panel time).
**It's important to note that the game panel's timezone is UTC/GMT +1**

Step 3: Click the blue "Create New" button found on the right side.

Step 4: Type a recognizable name for this schedule task so you can easily find/edit/trigger it later.


Step 5: Now you need to set the date and time you want the schedule to happen. You can do this by selecting what you want, (Shift and Ctrl click is supported) or typing what you want.
Using * signifies ALL choices.

For Restarting at 3AM the fields would look like this.

If all you wanted was to restart your server without any warning continue to Step 6a, otherwise skip to Step 6b

Step 6a: Your last step would be to change Perform Action to "Power Action" and to type "restart" (all lowercase) into the Payload field.


Step 7a: Then just click the "Create Schedule" button and you're done!

You can now find your scheduled task under the schedule tab from earlier.

All done! Further instructions are for sending server messages to countdown the restart.

Step 6b: Next we're going to set up a couple of warnings starting at 10 minutes. Make sure Preform Action is set to "Send command" and type, "say Server Restarting in 10 Mins." into the payload field.


Step 7b: You can set up up to 4 messages before you need to do the restart command. In this example I'm going to do one for 5 minutes, 1 minute, and 10 seconds. It's important to take note that each tasks will start counting down after the previous one happens. So please pay attention to the "After" section for the delays.


Step 8: Your last step would be to change the final task's Perform Action to "Power Action" and to type "restart" (all lowercase) into the Payload field.


Step 9: Then just click the "Create Schedule" button and you're done!

You can now find your scheduled task under the schedule tab from earlier.

All done!
