Periodic timer with specific start time

Post by stefanprivat » 13 Feb 2019 08:27

Hi
I'am new here, also automagic is new for me.
I'am searching for a periodic timer with a specific start time.

Means, I have 2 flows.
I would have, that the action in one flow will be startet/executed every 10 minutes, action start time is exactly 00:12 >> next action at 00:22 >> next action at 00:32 >> and so on .. whole day

Second flow same , but other time: action start time is exactly 00:16 >> next action at 00:26 >> next action at 00:36 >> and so on .. whole day

Can somebody help me to find an easy solution/flow please?

Hi!

How about the "Periodic Timer" trigger and the "Limit time range" option?

Thank you Bingwu.

Checked this also, but then I have to start the flow exact on this time (sample when a flow is activated at 00:12: >> next will e at 00:22 >> and so on.
(What when the phone is switched off, lo batt and so on..?) it runs out of this sync I suppose..

So my question is: How can I sart a flow/action exactly at the wished time and how do I prevent, that the flow will not runs out of the sync/time after several days?

In other words:
How do I start/control this flow/action, that really exact the planned times will be considered to start the action....... like "action start time is exactly 00:12 >> next action at 00:22 >> next action at 00:32" ?

!!!IMPORTANT NOTE: the action is still the same! I will run the same action to exact predefined times...like "action start time is exactly 00:12 >> next action at 00:22 >> next action at 00:32"....!!!

Hello Stefan!

basically:
- in the options of Automagic Start is activated after booting.
- the flow is activated

The "Periodic Timer" trigger automatically starts your flow so you do not have to intervene manually.

The following example (in german) starts your flow (every day of the week)
at 0:12 am, 0:22 am, 0:32 am, 0:42 am, 0:52 am, ... 9:32 pm, 9:42 pm, 9:52 pm, 10:02 pm and 10:12 pm
