ICE Loader for Topfield - scheduled load possible?

I notice the ICE Topfield loader has a "hide" option which allows it to stay running but minimised - I am wondering if an auto schedule function is coming for it for when a Toppy is permanently connected to a PC via USB.

I have this setup, with a long USB cable running from my PC up to my upstairs where my Toppy sits. It would be great to be able to tell the loader to upload new data every "x" days and at a specific time.

Is this something that could be added?

Any idea when this feature will be available?

A quick way of providing this would be to allow IceGuide4Topfield.exe to accept a command line parameter (like /FETCH) which would automatically fetch and upload the IceGuide.  Then you could use the Windows Scheduler to run it as often as you like.

Unfortunately there is no firm date as of yet.

We are currently testing the TAP and the new loader though.
