I am creating a timer job that sends mail on 1 day of every quarter of a year. I have written the code. Only I have to add code to schedule it. Please help me.

  • If that is custom timer job.. You can define the schedule and update the job with schedule ..

Don't use a timer job. Use a Windows Scheduled Task instead. Not only will this increase farm stability as you don't have custom code, you can also deploy code with zero downtime, and your schedule can be far more complex.


Is it timer job which will run inside the SharePoint or a Scheduled Task?
