Hi Freaks,

it is possible to start a Timed Action at a special time?
I use a timed Action every day at the same time.

At the properties of the Timed Action i 've the following values:
At "Time"
-> "Start this action" = 1 day after
-> "Timed event" = %updated

At "Roles"
-> Rebuild to Do list

At "Do this"
-> "Only start action if" -> I don't know what i've to use that the action started at 11:00 AM

->"When action completed" -> A Email will be send 

What can i do at "Only start action if" that action started every day at 11:00 AM?

Thanks for your help or another ideas,
Joe

I've found that "1 day after %Updated" results in what I call "time creep" as the 1 day is after the action finished.  If its more than immediate, the time begins to creep.

Personally, I use Windows timed event to call a flag.  I know some don't like that approach.

I suspect you could set a variable so it is always exactly 11:00 the next day (or the next run time) and use that in your timed event.  I've never tried that approach though.
