Re: RE:Schedule specific day in a month

Hi


In the version Qlik Nprinting june 2018 you can now use monthly and yearly schedules.


This is from the release notes pdf


Monthly and yearly schedule

Time-based triggers now allow the creation of monthly or yearly schedules.

This feature removes a gap between Qlik NPrinting 16 and 17+.


Best regards

Peter

Re: RE:Schedule specific day in a month

This would be good to have currently I either do weekly every 5 weeks or setup them up under once condition.

I am on 17.3 and would hope by now they have resolved this in subsequent releases.

If it because an issue I could consider setting up a daily task with a condition to be met where that condition is only true on a particular day of the month I want it sent but that would maybe put extra work on the server.

Re: RE:Schedule specific day in a month

thanks andy

am using latest Qliksense 17.3.2 Nov2017  but in this release also no monthly trigger

hope in feb release they will include.

yes i thought the same but i am not sure it will work or not?

i created the variable in Qlik like below

if(Recordmodifiedate=today(),1,0)

i added this variable in condition Nprinting ,for test data it is working but  is this correct ?

Re: RE:Schedule specific day in a month

Only you can answer that fella its your requirement.

Sometimes when testing I find it best to test the failure condition as well as the success one.

In this case you want to know that the task will fire but a report will not be sent whe the date isnt the day of the month you are looking for

Second test you want to know that the task will fire but a report will be sent when the date is the day of the month you are looking for so some sort of day() function would be useful in your case I think.

Re: RE:Schedule specific day in a month

Agree with Andy

I do not get it mate... you are asking all those basic questions - how did you get to "GURU" level here? Sometimes i think you are just playing all of us or something...

are you doing this for fun or what?

cheer and have a nice weekend.
