1) Go to System Settings, Admin Options.

3) In the window that opens, admins will see all the packages that exist in their account, who owns them, and what type of file it is.

4) If you have many packages, use the Filter bar to narrow down the results. You can filter on package name, owner, file type, or schedule names.

5) Packages can be deleted using the trash icon.

6) Packages can also be duplicated using the copy icon.

7) Tell a package to run by clicking the rocket ship.  The next time the scheduler runs on the machine where the package is located (every 5 minutes), your package will upload.  Please ensure that the scheduler service has access to the directory where the file is located. Also, ensure that the machine is turned on. Both of these must be true in order for the upload to run.

8) To edit your package, click the edit icon.

9) Here, you can edit the name of a package.
