Scheduled Automation

Robomotion provides a way to run a flow in periodic intervals. It is done by creating a Schedule from the Admin Console.

As an example, you may create an automation that creates an Excel report and emails that report to someone. You can schedule this automation to run every day at 9 AM before starting work. This can be a price analysis automation that collects your competitor's prices or some other info related to your market.

Or your automation may take 3-4 hours to complete, which may be a scraping task, then you may want to schedule your flow to run outside of business hours at night. A schedule flow may take a few minutes to multiple hours depending on the flow.

If a robot is busy running a flow when a schedule comes, then the scheduled flow is moved into the pending schedules queue automatically. This queue operates on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) principle. So when the previous flow is completed, the robot starts running the first came pending schedule.
