Select the SAVE button to save the displayed list of Scheduled Tasks and all their settings to a file that may be loaded into the Scheduler. By default, Collect! stores Scheduler Tasks files in the Collect\bin folder, but you can navigate to a different folder if you wish when the 'Save Scheduler Tasks File' dialog is displayed. Give a name to your scheduler task file. When you select the SAVE button, Collect! creates a special binary file with an *.sch extension that can only be read by Collect!.
