Title: schedule delayed email
Post by lrogers on Jul 30th, 2012 at 5:00pm
I am monitoring a folder for new files.  The new files are generated on Friday, but i want an email notificiation sent on Monday.  When I set the schedule for Monday only it doesnt work unless I delete the file and add it back in.  So I know my logic is correct, but I dont understand the scheduling.

Is there a way to do this delayed email? Or do I need to just copy the file on Monday to a new folder and then send it?

I will need to see your settings to be sure. Can you please enable "debug" and run the task. Next Monday (when you should have received the email but didn't), stop the task and email me a backup (see my signature below for my email). Details are here:

One thing comes to mind.... on the scheduler settings make sure you do NOT have the option "events outside these periods are ignored" set.
