Once you've created and published an App Routine, you can set that app routine to repeatedly run based on a schedule you set.

Scheduling an App Routine

When you are viewing the settings of your App Routine, the More Actions button has an option to set a Schedule for the App Routine.

This will take you to a screen where you can set up the schedule for the app routine.

When a schedule is set, the app routine will run between 3:00AM ET and 5:00AM ET on the scheduled day. You can choose from the following schedules:

  • Daily
  • Every Weekday
  • Weekly on a particular day of the week

You can also set the input for the app routine, however, you cannot set an expected output result. 

When you save the schedule, you will be able to view this from the App Routine List for your app.

As you can see from the above image, the My Routine has a calendar icon beside it and when you hover over it, how often it will run is shown.

App Routine Background Queue

When you have created a few app routines, or have installed apps that utilize app routines, you can see all the ones that are sheduled from your Account Settings.
