How can I schedule a rule to run every 2 weeks on a particular day?

Nick Menere Community Champion Oct 15, 2017

When scheduling a rule, I can set an interval every 14 days but I can't set the day I want it to execute.

If I use a Cron expression to schedule, you can't specify every 2 weeks (every fortnight).

Is there a way to run the rule every 2 weeks on a Monday at 9am?

In order to do this, you will need to use Cron to run the rule every Monday at 9am and then use a condition to check that it is an even (or odd) week of the year.

Your trigger would like:

You condition (the first thing after the trigger) will look like:

What this is doing is:

  • Rendering the current week of the year
  • Finding the remainder when you divide it by 2
  • If this is 0, it must be an even week, otherwise it is an odd week.

The formulae is:

{{#=}}{{#now}}w{{/}} % 2{{/}}
