Thanks to the Task manager module in the extension "Customize your platform" it is possible to plan the execution of specific or pre-defined tasks (such as advanced publication, regeneration of sitemap.xml files, etc.) according to your particular needs (execution of the PHP code will be launched). You can plan these events for single or multiple, periodic execution (e.g. every day at the same time, on a specific day of the week, every month, from Monday to Friday, etc.).
There are several possible uses, particularly when specific PHP code is sent into execution. Obviously, in such cases, use of this feature is suitable for expert users: it will be possible to send alert emails after specific events, carry out detailed maintenance on data from the tables, etc.
