    Unrecognized element 'scheduledTasks'

    Hi Everyone.

    I am trying to add a scheduled task into my umbraco website. I have added this section in the file umbracoSettings.config:

         <task log="true" alias="test60" interval="60" url="http://localhost:52732/umbraco/api/jobvacancies/sync" />

    But it is throwing the following exception:

    Umbraco.Core.Exceptions.BootFailedException: Boot failed. ---> System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Unrecognized element 'scheduledTasks'. (C:\\Source\\Repos\\giro-website\\src\\Giro.Website\\config\\umbracoSettings.config line 61)\r\n   at System.Configuration.BaseConfigurationRecord.EvaluateOne(String[] keys, SectionInput input, Boolean isTrusted, FactoryRecord factoryRecord, SectionRecord sectionRecord, Object parentResult)\r\n   at System.Configuration.BaseConfigurationRecord.Evaluate(FactoryRecord factoryRecord, SectionRecord sectionRecord, Object parentResult, Boolean getLkg, Boolean getRuntimeObject, Object& result, Object& resultRuntimeObject)

    I am not sure if this settings has been moved with the version 8 of umbraco.

    Scheduled tasks are no longer supported in v8.

    We would encourage you to looking into leveraging something like Hangfire instead:

    Hi @sebastiaan,

    Just to be sure, your answer seems to conflict with:

    Could it be that this BackgroundTaskRunner documentation has been added later?

    No conflict, this has nothing to do with the old scheduledTasks config.

    It's the built-in Umbraco way (indeed the docs were added later).

    Hangfire is a good alternative with a built-in interface to monitor scheduled tasks.
