In order to save time through the convenience of automated tasks, you can set up scheduled HeadMaster Online uploads in the HeadMaster desktop.

This must be set up on your server, and HeadMaster must be installed locally on the C: drive of your workstation.

Note

If you plan to make the automated upload into a scheduled task, we recommend that you set your automated upload settings first. Navigate to Tools > Options > Scheduled Tasks. In the drop-down list, select a data set. Then, select if you want to import lunch preorders.
