Option to schedule metadata refresh
We like the option to schedule metadata refreshes at particular time/days, still including the choice to manually run these as I understand customers may still wish to log in and push a refresh at a time of their choice (and/or switch off the scheduling option when not required).
This request will assist us in the timings the metadata refresh to fit with our automated reports that run in LMS so the correct LCN is captured at the point of refresh. As it would be preferable for us to run these in the early hours scheduling would allow us to do that.
There was a previous idea from 2016 but it was automate for all whereas we're proposing scheduling as an included option rather than mandatory https://ideas.talis.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-reading-lists/suggestions/15706317-automate-the-metadata-refresh

Being able to automate this would be really useful - we run it weekly and it doesn't seem like a particularly good use of a member of staff's time to have to log in and press buttons for a completely routine process, especially when that also involves making sure it is covered if that person is away etc.

This would be really useful. As Kristy says, I'd still want to be able to run a one-off job when needed, but for routine maintenance it would be good to be able to schedule this unattended.
