Scheduling Start and Stop times for Workflows

I would like to see the enhancement of being able to schedule a start and stop time for specific jobs that need to run multiple times per day, so they don't run during the nightly backup periods of the Alteryx server. This can cause the daily backups of the Alteryx Gallery to fail. Currently SQL Server Management Studio/SQL Server has the function to able to schedule start and stop times for specific job. Currently Scheduler page on Alteryx Gallery/Server lacks this feature.

Adding my support for this idea--this is necessary to avoid running workflows during server maintenance windows.

Yes, the ability to do lower frequency of jobs during the night / weekends, etc is a glaring omission to me. Windows Task Scheduler / SQL Server Scheduler should be bare minimum that the scheduler should be able to do in the Galley / Controller.

Hi all!

 

Thank you for your feedback and idea! It's great to see such a large amount of engagement on an idea in such a short time frame. This idea looks good to go in regards to content and use case, though further input is always appreciated so our product team can fully grasp the usefulness of a future and expand upon it if needed. For anyone who hasn't checked out our Submission Guidelines yet, they go over the idea board process and I recommend giving it a look.
