Forecasting a Cron Expression

Once a trigger is set (including non-working days restrictions) then in the Orchestrator you can only see the next run time:


My trigger is set to every 3rd working day of the month.

Where can I see all planned execution dates?

Orchestrator doesn’t have a built in feature to express future execution times. You can use a Cron Expression Generator such as Free Online Cron Expression Generator and Describer - to do this for you.

As an observation your Trigger details and the statement “set to every 3rd working day of the month” is conflicting. I suspect you have 3W in your cron expression, this would indicate the closest Weekday to the 3rd of the month.

For example the expression 0 0 12 3W * ? * == At 12:00:00pm, on the nearest weekday to the 3rd of the month, every month would result in the following dates notice the September 2022, would fall on Fri Sept 2nd as Friday is the closest to the 3rd where as April 2022 would be Mon April 4th.

  • Thu Mar 03 12:00:00 UTC 2022
  • Mon Apr 04 12:00:00 UTC 2022
  • Tue May 03 12:00:00 UTC 2022
  • Fri Jun 03 12:00:00 UTC 2022
  • Mon Jul 04 12:00:00 UTC 2022
  • Wed Aug 03 12:00:00 UTC 2022
  • Fri Sep 02 12:00:00 UTC 2022

If this would be useful for you, I would recommend posting a Feature Request if one is not already there in the Forum Feedback category for Orchestrator.


To be very simple

  1. Go to your tenant folder in orchestrator
  2. Click on Automation
  3. Click on Triggers tab where you can see all planned execution details
