Timer event - Delay until the DATE AND TIME specified

I have a process that gets kicked off given a date and TIME specified by a DATE AND TIME constant. So in my start event, I have a timer and I selected the option to Delay until the Date and time specified by the expression where I have a constant.

Say I want the process to kick off tomorrow at 7:00 AM then I would make the constant 7/24/2018 7:00 AM. That is working perfectly fine. However, if I want now the process to kick off a second time at 1:00 PM on the same day, the process is not getting kicked off.

I am thinking the timer is not looking at the TIME and it is looking at the date only. Is this an Appian defect?

  • Hi erickp,

    AFAIK, as everybody mentioned, you have to set two different triggers.
    On your case, the process model is getting its start time value from the constant, getting the constant value at the moment the process model is published. So, if you update the constant later, the process model will still be having the same value as when it was published, it won't take the new value unless you publish again the PM.
