Creating app reload tasks

Create an app reload task in the hub. When executed, the reload task fully reloads the data in an app from the source. Any old data is discarded. App reload tasks must include a scheduled trigger to execute the reload task automatically. The trigger determines the number of times the task will run (from one to infinity) and the frequency of the reload (once, daily, weekly, or monthly). For example, you can create a trigger to reload task to run 56 times, an app on a weekly basis. Create scheduled triggers for your tasks to reload app data at a specific time, date and frequency.
