Deferred scheduled actions


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

In specific cases, a scheduled action defined for a robot may be deferred by the scheduling agent (ProcessRobotScheduleActions) until its next recurrence or until the end of another scheduled action. The scheduling agent runs every five minutes.

While deferred, the affected robot will be in a standby state. Possible scenarios for deferring a scheduled action are as follows:

  • If a scheduled action A is about to happen, but there is action B with a higher priority that will start in the next 15 minutes, then scheduled action A is deferred.
  • If a scheduled action is about to start now, but according to the schedule it is supposed to end in the next 15 minutes, then this action is deferred.

  • Scheduling robots

    You can set schedules for robots, which reduces the manual effort of managing robots. Robots can be stopped outside of working hours or moved between work groups to provide assistance during known peak hours.
