Trying to payout vendors at a pre-determined date and time

Hi All

I want to pay all Vendors who’ve sold anything through my app each month at 11:00am GMT on the 24th of each month.

To achieve this, I’ve been playing with backend workflows but I feel this isn’t the right way to go and I’m not sure how to go about it anyway.

I’ve tried this… as a criteria for an API Workflow but, surely, it’s not right…

I’m concerned that because the smallest unit of time I can specify is a minute there will be at least 60 time changes during any specified minute which will cause my API Workflow to run. This will result in my paying vendors 60 times on the 24th of the month.

I’m guessing there’s a more sensible way of going about this. I’d be so grateful if anyone can tell me what it is.

If you want to do this (or do anything) at a specific time, you need to schedule a backend workflow to run at that time to do it.

Only when conditions are NOT used to schedule things.

That makes sense. Glad I checked! Thank you. You’ve saved me a lot of wasted time going down a futile rabbit hole!

Have a lovely weekend.
All the best
