[New Plugin] EasyCron - Flexible Scheduling for Recurring Workflows

Allows more flexible scheduling of recurring workflows by using EasyCron to hook into Bubble API Workflows.

Usage:

  1. Sign up for EasyCron, generate an API key and enter this API key in the plugins settings
  2. In your apps settings, enable “This app exposes a POST/Workflow API”
  3. In the same settings panel, generate an API key for EasyCRON to authenticate to Bubble with, call it EasyCronKey
  4. Create an API Workflow, example do_work
  5. Add a CRON job either via EasyCron control panel or using EasyCron - Add Action.
  1. Profit

There is also an CRONTimeFormatter element that can be used to convert Hours, Minutes, Days (Monday/Tuesday/etc) to the right format for CRON job creation and also allows for a GMT timezone offset in seconds (provided your EasyCron account is set to use UTC timezone).

EasyCron works great if you need to run a workflow every few minutes. i just created an endpoint and had EasyCron POST something to the database, and when that value is posted, have the workflow run. I have it currently set in EasyCron to every 1/2 hour. I am not sure if this is the most elegant solution but it worked for me

Can I schedule workflows with this plugin on ahobby plan
