This page provides a brief description of setting cron job schedules using crontab format. Developers familiar with App Engine Cron format can also use that.
Defining the Job Schedule

The time fields have the format and possible values shown in the following table:
|Field||Format of valid values|
|Day of the month||1-31|
|Day of the week||0-6|
