Task Reload: Load every 3 hours, between 0600 and 1800
I have a task that I would like to run every 3 hours between 0600 and 1800. Currently, the only way I know to accomplish this is to have an Daily load at 0600, 0900, 1200, 1500, 1800. As you can see, this is fairly verbose and error prone. I've looked at the Hourly load, but it doesn't seem to have a parameter to limit it within the hours of the day it kicks off.
I take it you have a number of Apps that you want to run on this schedule hence your search for a easier way to trigger.
May I suggest you have an app that you reload using the manual way you've suggested. Then have the rest of your Apps trigger on successful load of that app. Its not perfect but it will mimic what you are trying to do with less reload steps.
