Answer:
Hello,

I would suggest that you have 2 exclusions;
1. Saturday and Sunday
2. 12:00:01am and 7:59:59am

Looking at the screenshot you have it set to 00:00:01 and 7:59:59, try making the adjustment and let us know.

Hello,

I'd like to run the task every 10 min only Mon-Fri, 08:00-24:00, so, I set exclusions as followings.

1. "Do not trigger on "Saturday, Sunday"
2. "Do not trigger on "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday" between "00:00:01" and "07:59:59"

However, once save the trigger, it shows "There is no launch date in the next 5 years" somehow... (Why 5 years anyway...)
Is my setting wrong? or I can't such a trigger schedule? Please kindly advise.

I have attached some screenshots and task code.

Thanks and best regards,
Tetsuya

Hi Ricardo,

Thanks for your reply!
I am able to exclude the schedule with your suggestion.
It worked as expected!!

Actually, I thought I have to set exclusion days with time range, but just setting time range was the answer for my case.
I have learned something new.

Thanks again and best regards,
Tetsuya
