  1. [Scheduled Tasks] needs security options

    The "security options" section of the General tab in the Task Scheduler MMC snap-in doesn't appear to have an equivalent in Windows Admin Center. This prevents configuring options such as running the scheduled task even if the user is not logged in.

  5. Scheduled tasks do not correctly display recurring triggers in admin center.

    Scheduled tasks do not correctly show recurring triggers or allow you to configure with the same settings you can within the OS.

    For example we have a task that recurs every hour indefinitely after starting at boot. Admin center only shows a one time trigger of AtStartup. The configuration also only allows a few predefined times for repeating the task as well as for how long it can run.

    This needs to be updated in order to be able to properly view and manage scheduled tasks.

  9. Date issues and region inconsistency

    This really needs to be fixed!
    local machine and target machine are set for region United Kingdon with language English (UK)
    in Admin center I create a scheduled task and pick a start date or 2 Feb from the calendar pop up. This gets recorded as 02/07/2020 in US date format.
    I RDP via admin center to the target and open scheduled tasks - my task shows as starting 02/07/2020 BUT if I edit the cal pop up shows it starting on 7 July
    Also the keyboard is inconsistent - in Admin Center side bar options the keyboard produces UK…

  11. WAC 2103 - Scheduled task refresh button not working

    Click on Scheduled Task -> Find a task in the list and wait for the end of its execution (in my case, the task needs 7 minutes to complete) -> After the execution is completed: The status is still "Running" in WAC, clicking on the Refresh arrow next to the search box show the spinning dots for 5 seconds, however the same view is presented afterwards (old data, the task still shows as Running while it's not). Pressing F5 is the only way I found to refresh the scheduled task status.
