How to use Cron Scheduling?

Sometimes, there is a misunderstanding as to how the Cron scheduling works.

You should select the time when the campaign is going to be run, NOT the hour interval for the campaign execution as in other plugins.

If you want to run the campaign every two hours, you must select 0,2,4,6,8,10, etc. in the “Hours” list.

If you want to run the campaign every hour—at half past the hour—you should select 30 in the “Minutes” list and Any (*) in “Hours” and the other lists.

If you want to run the campaign once a day, you should select the time in “Hours” and “Minutes” from each list, and leave “Days”, “Months” and “Weekday” marked as Any (*).

Example: Run every day at 3:00 a.m.
