Why we check SSW Link Auditor reports everyday

SSW Link Auditor is a powerful tool to maintain our website, it can automatically scan the website and reports on broken links, warning links, inconsistent casing links and links which do not follow SSW Link Auditor rules.

We have scan schedules running every night on our internal site, and the scan result reports will be generated every morning. So we need to check the reports and fix links everyday.

In order to make sure the scan can be done in one night, we separate the scan into 4 small scans:

Currently, the scan schedules are on DODO :
