Almost every aspect of AutoMate can be configured to meet a user's specific requirements. Options such as default e-mail server, default user, proxy settings and task error handling capabilities can be configured globally from a central location in the Task Administrator.
From the Task Administrator interface, select the System menu item and scroll down to Options. This will open a window titled Options which includes a variety of general and system options separated by tabs as shown below:
Select the tab corresponding to the preferences you would like to configure.
Preferences are conceptually divided into two parts: Task Administrator options and Task Service options. To configure individual options, select the appropriate link below.
NOTE: By default, when configuring AutoMate you are configuring the local AutoMate (i.e. the AutoMate running on the same machine as the Task Administrator). However, when using Remote Administration, the Task Service preferences can be set on any machine you are connected to. See Using Remote Administration for more details.
