Butler calendar command duplicately runs 3 times on Monday if timezone changes


Calendar Command

every weekday at 1:00 am, rename list "Done Today" to "{date-1wd~dddd, MMMM Do YYYY}", create a unique list named "Done Today", move list "Done Today" to position 4, sort the cards in list "Backlog" by due date ascending and then by label red "Must", orange "Should", green "Could" ascending, and move each card in list "Backlog" due in less than 1 days to the bottom of list "To Do Today"


After my timezone changed from PDT to CDT, the calendar command above had 3 duplicate runs every Monday morning (Sunday 11:08 PM PDT == Monday 01:08AM CDT), as if it's making up for the 2 weekend days.

As seen from the log below, it ran three times on the same day.



This seems to be a bug? Any workaround is also welcomed as I do travel a lot. Thank you!

Hey @anton.qiu - thanks for the detailed description!

I'm currently working on chasing this issue down and fixing it, with the help of the Butler team. We're aware that some scheduled commands are running multiple times erroneously - it seems to be happening specifically at "busy" times (when a lot of commands are running).

A workaround for now may be to set your command to run at a less busy time (anything that's not a xx:00 time is a good start 😅, so in your case, 01:13AM instead of 01:00AM, for example).

Thanks Felix. I'll set it to run at a less busy time and monitor it for a week.
