Pega Robotics does not have a scheduling mechanism for it's projects. However, customers in the past that have needed to do such a thing have found it useful to use Windows Scheduler to automatically run the Runtime.exe at a specific time of the day.
In addition, you can set the start up project of the Runtime to a specific deployment package by using the startupproject setting within the runtimeconfig.xml
<add key="StartupProject" value="" />
The value would point to the local .openspan deployment file so that when Runtime is started by the scheduler it will automatically start the Runtime and load the designated project.
As far as setting the percentage of steps automated, that would have to be orchestrated solely by the volume of automation steps that are implemented in your solution. The scale of work that the Robot attempts to peform is based upon what is designed.
Thanks THomz. The new version of pega robotics management console does seems have a option to start and stop robots but not sure if it has scheduling options to it.
One more question which i am also trying to solve it how to make sure the robot doesnot work on automation when win scheduler stop the robot at lets same 11 PM EST. i am thinking of a couple of workarounds but not sure what is the clean solution.
