How in Qlik Sense management console maintain task event trigger restricted to work just in specific day of week?

Is it possible? and if so, then - How in Qlik Sense management console maintain task event trigger restricted to work just in specific day of week?

That is, previous task (loading data) successfully finished, then this should trigger next task and this next task should check somehow day of week and start just in case it's a Monday for example.

First task should be performed every day, it feeds Qlik apps with daily data.
Second task updates Qlik app with weekly data.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure in Qlik Sense one can do AND for 2 triggers, as in another Task completed AND it is Monday.

But in your Weekly qvf load script you could exit before doing anything with something like

Let vToday = text(WeekDay(today())) ;

if  vToday = 'Mon' then

trace  Today is $(vToday) so continue with script ;

else

trace  Today is $(vToday) so exit without running script;

exit script ;

end if
