Possible solution:

  • Create a dummy document that doesn't do anything except check the current weekday. It succeeds on a Wednesday, fails on all other weelkdays.
  • Configure a task for this dummy document with a trigger of type "Monthly Schedule" and let it run on the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st & 22nd of every month. At least one of those will be a Wednesday.
  • Attach the real task you want to run on the first Wednesday after the 15th of every month with a trigger of type "On event from another task" to run when the dummy task successfully completes.

Best,

Peter
