Feature request: UI for cron jobs (Timer node)

#1

I haven’t used cron enough to recall its syntax off the top of my head. I went and found a “calculator” to generate the string for me (this is a pretty good one).

It’d be handy if the Timer node had a proper UI for this. I realize there isn’t a lot of room to work with, however…

Thanks for the feedback! We assumed most users would need “every X minutes”, which is why there’s UI for that. We then added the cron support to handle specific cases. There’s definitely room between the two for more UX. What was the specific interval you needed?

Two different tasks, each once daily. These timers control a relay, which is basically just turning a light on and off.
