Included in your subscription is Schedules, a feature that enables you to periodically send requests to specified URLs (including your URLs, so your Custom Actions can be executed periodially) with a custom method, headers, and interval.

Schedules can be used for a variety of purposes, including cache warming, uptime monitoring, automatic data transfer, etc.

After creating the Schedule, you can view the logs for the last 100 scheduled requests.

Per default, the timeout for the Schedule requests is 5 seconds, but can range from 1 to 30 seconds.

A timeout or server error will trigger a Schedule error notification email, if enabled in Control Panel -> Settings.

Schedules can also be managed using the Schedules API.

  • 1 minute
  • 5 minutes
  • 10 minutes
  • 1 hour
  • 24 hours (at 00:00)
  • Every week (mondays at 00:00)
  • Every month (1st day at 00:00)

Schedule intervals are based on UTC time.
