Cron options

A few features in Magento require a script to be run periodically. These features include, but are not limited to:

  • Catalog Price rules
  • Sending Newsletters
  • Generating Google Sitemaps
  • Customer Alerts/Notifications (product price change, product back to stock)
  • Automatic updating of currency rates

To use Magento’s scheduled functions you must activate the Magento Cron service.
