Semi-annual automation in a project

Stefan Speck March 20, 2024

Hello dear community,

I have a question regarding automations in a project. Unfortunately, I can only find the setting that allows you to set weekly or monthly automations.

I would like to set a semi-annual automation for a customer. This means once on January 1st and once on July 1st of a year. How exactly do I set this up?

Best regards

Hi @Stefan Speck 

you can use cron expressions for complex schedules. I used this Cron expression builder: Free Online Cron Expression Generator and Describer - FreeFormatter.com

0 0 1 1 JAN,JUL ? *

This will execute on the 1st of Jan and Jul every year at 1 am.

Hi Stephan, if you use the 'Scheduled' for 'When' in your Automation, and then click on the 'Advanced' tab, you can use a Cron expression to identify the dates/times for your Automation.

I found this Cron Expression Generator website and based on that, I figured out this expression: 0 0 9 1 JAN,JUL ? *

That should run your Automation at 9:00 on the 1st day of January and July

Hope that helps

@Bhanu KN , I'm curious, would you need to set that up in July or January to get the six months to start in a particular month?

@Dan Breyen Was just showing a simpler way though not ideal. They will have to set it up in June. However, even a complete newbie will be able to understand what the rule does, unlike CRON. 

@Stefan Speck , I hope I was able to assist a little. Please accept the answer if it was of any help:)

It helps me grow in the community.

Cheers:)

@Dan Breyen according to the Screenshot, yes. Currently it would run in March and September.

So Cron Expression is the best way to go like you and I suggested.
