7. Document Settings -- “Output Tab”
The second tab, output, allows you to designate when and where updates will be generated and saved. The check box that says “disable automatic and scheduled updates” means that you want to manually initiate them yourself, or not at all. Perhaps you follow someone’s blog daily and they are going on a three-month absence without postings. You could use this setting to temporarily discontinue the automatic updates, yet keep the document in your SXL for later when the blogger is back. See Figure 4 at the bottom of this post.
Scheduling information is put into the top box by clicking “New” and setting a schedule. This is useful, let’s say, if your source website only changes daily or weekly or monthly. You can also set updates for smaller time increments by using the “hourly” settings. I like the New York Times Magazine section, which only is published on Sundays. So my schedule for that is “Every Sunday at 12 AM.” It only gets updated the first time each week that Sunrise XP runs after midnight Sunday morning. See Figure 5 at the bottom of this post.
If you leave the schedule box blank, Sunrise XP will always check the Source for updates every time it is run.
The destination information on the output tab should reflect your default setting from before. Change it if necessary for this particular document. (Example, you usually put your documents on the expansion card, but you wish to store this particular document in the internal RAM).
