Do Every 1800 Seconds Stops Working

I’m not sure if this is a bug or not, but I’m building digital signage for a fire station where it displays a call when it comes in and also it fetches the weather every 1800 seconds (30 minutes).

What I’ve found is that is it’s not doing it every 1800 seconds?
Is there a max limit to the “Do Every” function or is this a bug?

I’m not aware of any limit, and I use that event quite frequently. However, my intervals are generally much smaller.

That said, keep in mind that Do every works client-side. In your case, it will fire only if the page is active for at least 30 minutes. Each time the page is loaded / reloaded, the timer resets. You might consider scheduling a back-end (server-side) workflow.

Steve,

I appreciate the swift response, if I’m not mistaken scheduled workflows can only trigger as often as daily on the production plan and monthly on personal?

I think you want to implement a recursive (not recurring) workflow. Basically, the workflow reschedules itself with each execution.
