  • 1.  Period Container Bug in 21.0.6

    Posted Oct 02, 2023 04:33 PM

    Hello everyone, 

    I just wanted to post something about this system defect I found in 21.0.6, since support says they don't need a bug report but I think customers should know about it.

    If you schedule a period container that skips a day, and try to execute it on that day, it will skip the day you executed (fine) it and the following day (not fine). 

    But only if you use a calendar keyword. In other words, on the period container object, you can use the checkboxes with no trouble under the weekly option. But if you decide to use a calendar keyword and select do NOT run on CW Tuesday, and then try to execute your workflow recurring using that period container on a Tuesday, it will skip Tuesday, and Wednesday. Next check will be midnight Thursday.

    This doesn't work:

    This does:

    Hopefully that isn't confusing.
