Scheduled Run node

This node lets you define the time and date of launching your workflow. This way you can indicate both the point in time and the time range of your workflow. It is particularly useful in the case of repeatable workflows that function as integrations, and in the future – data imports and exports.

Node configuration


  1. Go to Automation > Workflows > New workflow.

  2. Click the pencil icon on the node.
    Result: A pop-up opens.

  3. From the Run trigger dropdown, select one of the options:

    • All time - It’s the default option. It lets you set the workflow to be launched repeatedly at the frequency defined in the settings of the node.
    • One time - This option lets you launch the workflow only once at the date defined in the settings of the node.

    2. Select one of the following tabs:
      • Everyday - It lets you launch the workflow every day at the defined time.
      • Every week - It lets you select the week days and the exact time when the workflow is launched.
      • Every month - It lets you define the days of the month and the exact time, when the workflow is launched. The workflow is repeated every month on the defined day(s) at the selected time.
    WARNING:

    When you select a day that does not exist in a month (for example, February 30th or September 31st), the workflow will not trigger that month.

Example of use


In this example, you schedule the workflow launch to send alerts with metric results from Synerise to a Slack channel.

Configuration of the workflow that sends alert messages based on the metric results to the Slack channel
Configuration of the workflow that sends alert messages based on the metric results to a Slack channel

This workflow includes the following nodes:

  1. The node that launches the workflow periodically (Scheduled Run), in this example it is everyday at 7.00 A.M
  2. The node that sends a webhook to a Slack channel with a message that contains the metric results
  3. The finishing node
