With the release of RStudio add-in possibilities, a new area of productivity increase and expected new features for R users has arrived. Thanks to the help of Oliver who has written an RStudio add-in on top of taskscheduleR, scheduling and automating an R script from RStudio is now exactly one click away if you are working on Windows.
How? Just install these R packages and you have the add-in ready at the add-in tab in your RStudio session. Select your R script and schedule it to run any time you want. Hope this saves you some day-to-day time and feel free to help make additional improvements. More information: https://github.com/jwijffels/taskscheduleR.
