  • 1.  Scheduler

    Posted 5 days ago

    I have a situation where i want to create a scheduler to load a process from 8am to 4pm, every 1 hour. In that, i want the Blue Prism to check if the scheduler is executed for the first time in a day, then it will send a Process initiation notification. Otherwise it will skip the step and follow the next step, that is loading the items into the queue. 

    What i mean is that, from the 2nd run, it should skip the email notification step and start directly with loading items step. 

    How can i do that in the scheduler?

    Hi Gabriel - you can't do that directly in the scheduler, and instead you'll need to add some logic to the process. During the first run, the process sets some kind of flag or indicator that the next run will pick up. The flag describes if the previous run completed the task, and if it did, the next run knows not to do it. So in simple terms:

    1. Start
    2. Get the indicator set by my predecessor
    3. If the predecessor was successful, there is nothing for me to do.
    4. If the predecessor was not successful, I will try to do the task and set the flag to tell my successor if I was successful.
