Chaining Profiles (Running Profiles in Sequence)


There are several ways to run jobs one at a time.

Running profiles with the scheduler running one job at a time

One way to run jobs one after another is to use the Scheduler. Give them a scheduled time and leave a minute between each profile. On the Scheduler tab sheet, click on the Tools and Settings button and uncheck “Start Profiles In Parallel”. Alternatively, go to the Program Settings dialog, tab sheet Advanced, and specify 1 for Max. simultaneous jobs.

Running profiles via manual invocation

For manual runs, select the profiles in the Overview, right-click the selection and choose “Run in Unattended Mode”. This will run them one after another, as opposed to “Run in Background”.

If you need Syncovery to do other things while the jobs are running, you can open Syncovery a second time.

Chaining profiles directly

Another way is to chain profiles. As an “after” command line in “Execute before/after” you can put:
RUN PROFILE Profile Name

This will start the next profile when the first one has finished, and so forth. The problem is that the chaining is always done, so it may be a problem if there is an occasion where you want to run only one of the chained jobs.

Using the command line

Yet another way is to use the Syncovery command line and invoke your jobs from a batch file or script:
