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?

  • When the process model is published (and first run?) the values used in the constant/expression are set for the start timer and can't be changed.If you set the condition to check that the current date is in a string of dates that you store in a constant you could change the constant whenever you want and the next day the process will check for the current list of dates.it won't take the new value unless you publish again the PM.
