Task Scheduling in Enterprise Vault

When setting up new tasks in Enterprise Vault, the default for each task is to use the 'site schedule'. My question today is whether anyone uses this site schedule? Let's discuss...
Here is the site schedule on one of my test environments:

That's right the default is that the schedule is set to 'never'.  I'm not sure that this is the same across all versions of Enterprise Vault - this was a new installation.
To me having the default of 'use site schedule' on new tasks seems to lead us down the path of laziness.  We might assume that the site schedule is set to 'something' when in fact it's not.  We come in to work the following day to find that our new shiney task hasn't done anything .. and it's because the schedule is not set correctly!
Do you use the 'site schedule'? Let me know in the comments.
