Issue with Running Hourly Schedule Using Odd Numbers

  • 1.  Issue with Running Hourly Schedule Using Odd Numbers

    When creating a Schedule to run every hour. I am setting it to run every 5 hours, however, each day the scheduled time is incremented by an hour. This seems to be occurring whenever the hourly frequency is set as an odd number.

    When it's set to an even number (IE every 4 hours), it runs at the same times each day>

    Example:

    The schedule is set to run "Every 4 hours" between 1:59 PM & 6:01 PM starting at 2 PM EACH day
    The process kicks off at 2 PM & 6 PM

    However when

    The schedule is set to run "Every 5 hours" between 1:59 PM & 7:01 PM starting at 2 PM EACH day
    The process kicks off at 2 PM & 6 PM for the current day, then 3 PM ONLY on the next day, then 4 PM ONLY the next.

    There seems to be an inaccuracy when setting hourly runs using odd numbers.

    We're currently using Blue Prism v6.4.2
