What Is the Purpose of Schedules?

The purpose of schedules is to accomplish recurrent tasks on a regular interval in order to free the Coveo administrator from having to perform these basic operations manually. In other words, schedules maintain the index in its optimal state (up-to-date, defragmented, etc.) and let Coveo administrators focus on more important duties.

Two types of schedules exist: source refresh and system schedules. Source refresh schedules automatically refresh or rebuild sources. Whereas, system schedules perform maintenance tasks, such as index optimization and security cache update.
