What are Scheduled Scans?

You can view, edit, and delete your scheduled scans from the /scheduler page and download the latest scan result. Editing a scan will let you change the time when the scheduled scan will start and the frequency/period (daily, weekly, monthly) of the scan as well as the recipients of the scan result.
