:question: :question: :question:

Is it possible to set up my scenario to run every 30 minutes from 9:00 to 17:00 on Mondays and Tuesdays?
And will the first run be at 9:00 or at 9:30?

:reply: :reply::reply:

Sure its possible!

You just need to start your scenario with a polling trigger and do an easy setup in advanced scheduling.

:one: Click the clock on your trigger module in order to set your scheduling.


:two: Click the Advanced scheduling option.

:three: Set up your scenario to run

  • at regular intervals
  • every 30 minutes
  • from 9:00 to 17:00
  • on Mondays & Tuesdays

:four: To answer the last part of the question - if you schedule your scenario to run like this, the first run will be at 9:00.

Just a quick heads up for anyone else whos trying to do this - this doesnt seem to work now. Your scenario will be scheduled based on the time when you last edited the scheduling. So in order to make the scenario run on the hour, youd need to save the scenario on the hour too :sweat_smile:

Just as @alexs said, this doesnt work anymore.
Maybe @samliew would know a way to do this today?

The scheduling should still work, youll just need to switch on the schedule at:

  • exactly at the start of the hour, or
  • when it is not scheduled to run (outside of the scheduled hours)

otherwise the first day will be off
