Trigger by Schedule

Trigger by Schedule

The trigger type Trigger by Schedule allows you to define a time interval in order to execute your Actions automatically.

There are 2 (two) categories inside of this trigger type:

  1. By Interval: Allows you to specify a time interval to trigger the Action automatically. You can choose the time interval in the right side, the minimum time allowed is 1 minute.
  2. By Date: Allows you to specify date to trigger the Action. For example, you can choose to run it at the second Wednesday of each month.

Customizing By Date

If you pick the By Date type, you can also choose to customize it in either a basic or advanced way.

Basic customization allows you to customize the date through interface fields, while Advanced customization allows you to write a cron to define the date.
