You can use OnDemand to schedule tasks in HeadMaster Online to run when you're busy working on other projects, or when your staff is the least likely to be working in the system. This can be particularly helpful for uploading assignments and homework to HeadMaster Online. However, only one task may be added per hour. For example, if you schedule an assignment upload at 3 p.m., the next task cannot be scheduled to begin until 4 p.m.


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.
