The Scheduler activity should be considered as a scheduled start. The activity positioning rules within the chart are the same as for the Start activity. This activity must not have an inbound transition.
When building your workflow, only use one Scheduler activity per branch and remember to set a time zone. It will be set otherwise to run at the server time zone.
The Repetition frequency of the activity cannot be less than 10 minutes. It means that a workflow cannot be automatically executed more than once every 10 minutes.
Define the execution details according to the frequency selected. The detail fields may vary depending on the frequency used (time, repetition frequency, specified days, etc.).
The Repetition frequency field allows you to space out the times when the workflow is triggered. For example, if you select a daily execution period and the repetition frequency is set at 2 (days), the workflow will be triggered every two days. It cannot be less than 10 minutes. If the repetition frequency is set at 0 (also the default value), this option is not taken into account and the workflow will run according to the execution frequency specified.
In the Execution options tab, set up the time zone for your scheduler in the Time zone field. This allows you to start your workflow at a specific time zone, otherwise the workflow will run in server time zone by default.
In the following example, the activity is configured so that it will start the workflow on a weekly basis, every other Monday at 7am, for an undetermined duration.
