Run a task in a hourly basis for everyday and stopping at 18:00

Hi,

At the moment, I have an hourly task runing 24/7. But I would like to run it from 08:00 to 18:00 everyday.

How can I stop the task at 18:00 and run it the next day at 08:00 automatically? Can anyone help please?

Thanks,

Francisco

by default, you can't

but there is a workaround

create a dummy file. there in the script check the actual time

if hour(now()) >= 8 and hour(now()) <= 18 then

// ok

else

error

endif

create a task every hour

then let your app run not on schedule but depending on successful run of the first task.

from 8-18 the task runs successful, your app is running, the other time ist runs to an error, your app is not running
