Auto Running

ThinkAutomation can also execute Triggers at predefined intervals without having to read an incoming message. This is useful in instances where you want to execute a Trigger to do some actions at set times of the day - regardless of whether new messages exist.


This is done by enabling the Auto Run This Account With A Default Message option on the Account Schedule form:




If this option is enabled then ThinkAutomation will create a new message at the Account schedule. This message will be added to the Edge Queue and be processed by the Message Processor - thus executing the Triggers for the Account.


You can define the message text by clicking the Set Auto Run Message Text button. This is optional - as you may not need to actually extract data from a message when executing Triggers in this way.
