I created some scheduled tasks and they run some .ps1 scripts which helps allot in some daily tasks to automate.
I would like also to create some scheduled tasks which run each month on the first.
I only don't see a monthly option, only Once, Daily, Weekly, AtLogon, AtStartup.
Below the script i use right now, could somebody help me?
# Script $Action = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute C:\Scripts\script.cmd # Trigger $Trigger = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -Weekly -DaysOfWeek Monday -At 01:00am # Account and logon $Principal = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserId domain\mangedserviceaccount -LogonType Password -RunLevel Highest # Create task Register-ScheduledTask -Action $Action -Trigger $Trigger -TaskName "Taskname" -Principal $Principal -Force

You can program the task scheduler manually. Example:
# https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/taskschd/task-scheduler-start-page # https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/taskschd/taskservice $scheduler = New-Object -ComObject('Schedule.Service') $scheduler.Connect() $root = $scheduler.GetFolder('\') $task = $scheduler.NewTask(0) # flags, reserved, must be 0 $task.RegistrationInfo.Description = 'do this first monday each month' $task.RegistrationInfo.Author = 'James Bond' $task.settings.StartWhenAvailable = $true # https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/taskschd/ne-taskschd-_task_trigger_type2 $trigger = $task.Triggers.Create(5) # 5=TASK_TRIGGER_MONTHLYDOW $trigger.StartBoundary = [datetime]::new(2018, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss") # year, month, day, hour=1am, minute, second $trigger.DaysOfWeek = 2 # monday < # https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/taskschd/monthlydowtrigger-monthsofyear January 0X01 1 February 0x02 2 March 0X04 4 April 0X08 8 May 0X10 16 June 0X20 32 July 0x40 64 August 0X80 128 September 0X100 256 October 0X200 512 November 0X400 1024 December 0X800 2048 #> $trigger.MonthsOfYear = 0x1 -bor 0x2 -bor 0x4 -bor 0x8 -bor 0x10 -bor 0x20 -bor 0x40 -bor 0x80 -bor 0x100 -bor 0x200 -bor 0x400 -bor 0x800 $action = $task.Actions.Create(0) # 0=TASK_ACTION_EXEC (command-line operation) $action.Path = 'C:\Scripts\script.cmd' $action.Arguments = '' $task.Principal.RunLevel = 1 # TASK_RUNLEVEL_HIGHEST $task.Principal.LogonType = 1 # TASK_LOGON_PASSWORD $task.Principal.UserId = 'domain\mangedserviceaccount' # NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM # https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/taskschd/taskfolder-registertaskdefinition $newtask = $root.RegisterTaskDefinition('Taskname', $task, 6, $null, $null, 1)
