The Trigger section contains information about the trigger(s) which would run a task. Each Server Task can have up to one trigger. Each trigger can run only one Server Task. If Configure trigger is not selected in the Basic section, a trigger is not created. A task can be created without trigger. Such a task can be run afterward manually or a trigger can be added later.
Advanced Settings - Throttling
By setting Throttling, you can set advanced rules for the created trigger. Setting throttling is optional.
All configured options are displayed here. Review the settings and click Finish if they are ok. The task is now created and ready to be used.
