Add chat message to info about back-up

How would I add chat message to warn before back-up starts to let players know about possible lag during back-up and one when finished

The way i would do it would probably be the over complicated version. You could go into the scheduling tab and create a task at exact times to backup. Then you could a “send to console” task that runs a few seconds prior to each backup.

It’s actually not too bad. I have 5 task entries for backups, so i would have to create 5 tasks entries for the message.

This is what my scheduled tasks look like… don’t judge. :wink:

Hope this helps.

I did think of that but not all backups stop at the same time. Guess I could warn of start and it can take a few minutes, Guess Will could add message at start and stop of backup to simplify it
