Get-ScheduledJob

Gets scheduled jobs on the local computer.
Get-ScheduledJob [[-Id] <Int32[]>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-ScheduledJob [-Name*] <String[]> [<CommonParameters>]

The Get-ScheduledJob cmdlet gets scheduled jobs on the local computer. Get-ScheduledJob gets only scheduled jobs that are created by the current user using the Register-ScheduledJob cmdlet.

Although jobs that are created by using the Register-ScheduledJob cmdlet appear in Task Scheduler, Get-ScheduledJob gets only scheduled jobs. It does not get scheduled tasks created in Task Scheduler.

Without parameters, Get-ScheduledJob gets all scheduled jobs on the computer. You can use the parameters of Get-ScheduledJob to get scheduled jobs by ID or name and examine them or pipe them to other cmdlets.

Get-ScheduledJob is one of a collection of job scheduling cmdlets in the PSScheduledJob module that is included in Windows PowerShell.

For more information about Scheduled Jobs, see the About topics in the PSScheduledJob module. Import the PSScheduledJob module and then type: Get-Help about_Scheduled* or see about_Scheduled_Jobs.

    This command gets all scheduled jobs on the computers that are listed in the Servers.txt file. The command uses the Invoke-Command cmdlet to run a Get-ScheduleJob command on each computer.

Additional Notes
 Each scheduled job is saved in a subdirectory of the 
 $homeAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsPowerShellScheduledJobs directory on the local computer. The 
 subdirectory is named for the scheduled job and contains the XML file for the scheduled job and records of its 
 execution history. For more information about scheduled jobs on disk, see about_Scheduled_Jobs_Advanced.
 Scheduled jobs that you create in Windows PowerShell appear in Task Scheduler in the Task Scheduler 
 LibraryMicrosoftWindowsPowerShellScheduledJobs folder. You can use Task Scheduler to view and edit the 
 scheduled job.
 You can use Task Scheduler, the SchTasks.exe command-line tool, and the Task Scheduler cmdlets to manage 
 scheduled jobs that you create with the Scheduled Job cmdlets. However, you cannot use the Scheduled Job 
 cmdlets to manage tasks that you create in Task Scheduler.
