Repeat Expression

Hi

I have been working hard trying to understand what in the world is the logic for this expression. After having Twitter post once a minute for 90 minutes, and a ton of frustration, I want to know a bit more about this so I can use it properly. I also dont undestand how to change the presets on the right. Some of them are not helpful for me.

Can I get a few examples to auto post:
on the Second Friday of every month
Every 5 weeks
Every 26 days
Is there a "Repeat 10 times only" feature (10, or 20 or 3)

Thnks

Hi, Thanks for reaching out!

A repeat expression is based on cronjob expressions. They are powerful ... but not so expressive as you are looking for.

From your examples...

Second Friday of every month (9:30 am): 30 9 7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15 * 5 *

There is no way to count N times for every X. So, it is not possible to implement "Repeat 10 times only", but you can define a repeat until a date (so, you can calculate how many times is repeated until that date).

Regards,

Hi,

That's the way of saying the days of the second week of the month.

Hi,

Yes... the expression represents all possible Fridays of any month.
