The Scheduled Scans section contains a list of all scheduled scan jobs displayed as tiles. Each tile lists the scan type, a summary of the scan interval and the amount of time remaining until the next scan interval. 

Scheduled scans can run unattended, which means they can run without showing the scan screen or scan progress to the user. Unattended scans can run if no user is logged on in Windows. The animated scan icon (magnifier glass in the system tray) indicates that an unattended scan is running. You can open the scanner window by clicking on the animated system tray icon. If you close the scanner window, the scan will continue. Unattended scan results are notified as follows: 

Clicking on the Add new scan button (or clicking an existing scan job tile if you wish to edit it) opens a dialog with the following tabs for configuring scan time, frequency and other advanced options:
