Scheduled event based on a constant

1

Hello, while I was changing a scheduled event to trigger earlier I was wondering why it is not possible to let a scheduled event be triggered based on a datetime constant, is this by design? Is this a technical limitation? At the moment I have to create a new deployment just to let a scheduled event trigger an hour earlier.

There is an Appstore Module from mendix labs which allows you to schedule microflows at runtime.

Mendix can do anything Java can do so it is not a technical limitation, rather a design choice of Mendix. You are limited to  creating an other scheduled proces/microflow/widget that takes care of the timing.

Why don’t you have the scheduled event run every hour. Then at the start of the event microflow  compare the time to your constant and decide if it should run or not.

I think it's better to post this is in the Idea forum? Sounds like a design choice to me.
