CRON Expression in Timer Campaign Element


I am relatively new to CRON expressions and trying to get a grasp on it through reading on Basically, I would like to add a timer element to time an email to launch every two weeks on Friday at 9:00 AM. 

What would be the best way to write this expression since Creatio only allows 7 parts max? Thanks in advance for any guidance provided.

 Hello Lucas,


If the CRON expression cannot be created using this quartz generator then this CRON expression won't work in the app. Indeed, expressions like this:

0 0 * * Fri [ $(expr $(date +%W) \% 2) -eq 1 ]

won't be processed by the designer stating that there are more than 7 parameters in the expression. But I will ask our core R&D team to add suppoting of complex expressions that will make it possible to use expressions like the one above.


Thank you for this idea and helping us in making the app better!

Oleg Drobina,

Hi Oleg, thank you for the feedback. Also, adding the ability to add a frequency of every 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks, etc. to the timer campaign element can help as well.
