I scheduled an automatic backup with Automator, it has run properly and I receive a pop-up notification every day informing about it. Now, I want to stop the task but I do not know where to find the list of scheduled tasks and how to kill them.


Automator by itself does not provide scheduling facilities. You'll need to disable the scheduled launch of a workflow using whatever you used to schedule the workflow originally. For example,

  • if you used a recurring calendar appointment, you'll need to use Calendar to delete the appointment.
  • if you used a third-party application, you'll need to use that application to disable the schedule.
  • Thanks. I simply did not look in the right place. I do not use Apple "Calendar" so I could not see that I have a recurrent appointment to perform the backup. Jan 17 '18 at 11:17
