Launcher Settings - Advanced scheduling options
You have two options:
- Launch now: which immediately launches the workflow
- Launch later: schedules the workflow at a date and time of you choosing
Pretty straight forward, just choose a date and time and the workflow will launch exactly at this date.
In our example, the workflow will launch on the 8th of August 2021 at 10am.
Automatic Repeated Scheduling
You can choose to schedule the workflow to run repeatedly:
In our example, the workflow will launch every day, at the same time once you click Launch.
It's generally a good idea to combine " Launch later" with "Schedule repeatedly" to know exactly when the workflow is going to launch.
There's two additional settings:
Disable schedule when errors occursif you launch a task every day and the task fails, it disables the schedule
Disable schedule when no data are returnedif you launch a task every day and the task do not return any results (e.g. the search is done), the schedule is disabled
Time slots settings determine a given time frame when a workflow is actually working.
In our example, the workflow will only work between 8am and 5pm only on week days.
- selecting Hours
14:00the workflow will only launch between 8a.m. and 2p.m.

You can choose a specific timezone in the Time Slots settings.
The default time zone being Europe/paris - we suggest you to edit the timezone depending on your country for more accurate results and scheduling predictability.
