Cron Job

cron is a Linux utility that schedules a command or script on your server to run automatically at a specified time and date. A cron job is the scheduled task itself. Cron jobs can be very useful to automate repetitive tasks.

Your web server must support configuring cron jobs, in order, Concord CRM features to work properly, after installation, please make sure to check the cron job guide to get familiar on how to configure the cron job required by the application.
