    Fetch does not have a built-in scheduling feature, but you can use AppleScript and a scheduler like iDo Script Scheduler (see http://www.powerkey.com ).

    Just out of curiousity, what sort of functionality would you want from a built-in scheduler if we were to develop one?

    Thanks,

    Dear Jim
    I would like to exchange large amounts of data (mp3) over an FTP server. Since I am only allowed to do this at night I would like to schedule it.
    Thanks a lot

    Dear Jim
    when I want to schedule my ftp transfer fetch asks me for the password. How can I achieve that the password gets filled in automatically? is it possible to store passwords in fetch?
    thanks

    One option is to add the password to the keychain , and make sure the keychain is unlocked when the script is run. Another option is to put the password in the script; Fetch does not put passwords into recorded scripts but you can put them in manually. For example, if the script contained a URL "ftp://myuserid:@myserver.com/" you would enter the password between the : and the @.

    Thanks,
