Tip #12: Automate recurring activities using Schedules in Orchestly

Until now, custom functions in Orchestly are triggered from Blueprints and Business Rules based on transitions or updates performed in jobs. To widen the scope of custom functions and enable users to trigger functions independently, without relying on the actions performed in Jobs, we’ve introduced Schedules.  

Schedules are used to trigger custom functions periodically or at defined time intervals, viz. weekly, monthly, and yearly.

Let us consider a real-time scenario where schedules can be used. Say, your organization conducts internal audits every month. To initiate the audit, the tech-security team creates a job in Orchestly with the audit details. Since this job is created every month, it is a recurring activity.
To automate this recurring activity, we can script a custom function and predefine the audit details in it. This function can later be configured in Schedules and set to be triggered on a specific date every month. 

Similarly, custom functions can be scheduled to generate:
  • Daily customer ticket logs 
  • Daily timesheets and reviews
  • Weekly issue resolution status
  • Weekly customer engagement stats
  • Monthly target achievement reports and
  • Periodical data sync
Note: Schedules is a beta feature and hence will not be available for all our users. If you’d like to try it out, drop an email to us and we would be very glad to enable beta access for your account. 
Let us know how Schedules helps your organization automate functions. Visit our help center to get detailed insights into Orchestly’s features. Developers could also benefit from our API and Extension Development guides.
