A Question About Triggers

Hello there,

Is there a way to trigger robots in a period of more than 24 hours?

For example, I want a trigger that will work in a 26-hour period so the start time will shift 2 hours every day.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @efegemensen

This is a very specific requirement and understandably the standard trigger functionality won’t easily enable what you’re looking for. However, it is possible to do this.
You will need a custom approach, such as creating an indicator file that will inform the automation when to actually start the work.
For example,
Identify a network location which will be checked by the robot at the start. The filename (or file content) will have information about when the last job finished or when the next shift will start (depending on whether you want to start 26 hours AFTER the job finished or strictly at the start of next 26-hour shift slot)
A trigger will check periodically (say, at an hourly frequency) and check if it is time to do the work yet. The job will quickly finish without doing anything if the time hasn’t yet reached.

I hope you can develop on this idea and achieve what you’re after.
Happy automation!
