View Full Version : CFSCHEDULE Task Stopped Working at Midnight

September 5th, 2010, 03:31 AM
Just curious if anyone has had a similar problem or knows a quick fix to the problem I have having with a scheduled task stopping at the stroke of midnight the next day.

In my code i have the following

starttime="10:00 am"

The code worked flawlessly all day until midnight hit and I got the last automated message. It sends me an email every 30 min with some simple information, so this is how I was able to determine that it stopped. Just wanted to see if there had been any similar results or a solution out there.

Thanks guys!

Thanks for the offer. I am not quite to that point, I like to bother you guys as a last resort!

Right now, I think it has something to do with the fact that I set the schedule to start at 10am. As 10am came around today and it started sending me the email again. I am curious to watch it for another day to see if it does indeed shut down at midnight and waits till 10am to kick back on.

If I cant figure it out, I will fill out a support ticket and inquire within.

I noticed in your sample above you did not specify an endDate. Try adding that, otherwise, every day at 10am it will pick back up like you noticed. Without the endDate I believe it will stop at midnight.

Brian, I didn't put an endDate because I don't want it to end... What do you suggest for a scenario where I don't want it to end?

You can use 12/31/2099 for the endDate which would accomplish the same task.

It should also be noted that you should also set the starttime attribute close to 12:00 (ie, 12:01-12:10) if you plan on having the task run continuously.
