I haven’t tried this, but instead of 1 minute you might could put .50 to represent 30 seconds.February 26, 2019 at 10:20 am #134640
I already gave that a go, It just rounds it up to 1 min you can see from the log

do you mean all three emails send at the same time? how would i go about that.
You could open up 3 different tabs and use three different emails if you have them available.
I just thought about it. If you have any wait at all it will push the job to the next routine check, which occurs every 2 minutes. So even 1 minute or .5 will be pushed up to 0-2 minutes.February 26, 2019 at 10:25 am #134642
The cached email is still a very strange occurrence. This is shooting in the dark, but what if you submit with defer processing off, but from an incognito browser? I don’t think that will change things but it’s work a try.
What the test is designed to check is if for some reason the cached email is due to a browser based cache, which seems impossible. But worth checking out.February 26, 2019 at 10:28 am #134643
I have run that test over 50 times now : ) it failed every time until I put the 1min delay on before the email goes out.
I expect most users leave defer processing on. so this might hide the bug in many cases.

Great looking out. I re-ran my tests with deferred processing off and was able to repeat the bug.
I’ve a fix on the way today.February 26, 2019 at 11:05 am #134645
Hurray : D top notch that is great news, looking fwd to the patch. thanks for the great comms. best, Al.February 27, 2019 at 6:39 am #134647
Hello! my website has now gone live, I just went with the one min delay. of course the fix will be much appreciated still.
couple of questions:
1. If I update word press or inbound now, will I loose everything in my queued tasks?
2. is it possible to hide the Action Delayed and Starting Job that happens every couple of mins in the log? its drowned out all the useful info (screenshot attached)

Newest release is available publicly.
Updates will not affect queued tasks, but it might cause a break in processing.
I see what you mean about drowning out processing logs. I’ll write in an improvement moving forward. Will be available in next release. Will let you switch to which type of log you’re wanting to view.February 28, 2019 at 11:34 am #134653
when you say a break in the process, is this likely to affect people who have signed up?
thanks for the log improvement thats brilliant

I only think it will momentarily halt processing, but it shouldn’t break any queued rule tasks.February 28, 2019 at 2:45 pm #134656This reply has been marked as private.March 1, 2019 at 2:32 pm #134663
Also I’m available for hire here:
Maybe I could improve automation’s wait action to have an option for “Wait until next time occurrence: 10 AM (powered by dropdowns)”
What do you think?
This would be limited to your WordPress instance’s interpretation of the time zone. I know more advanced marketing automation solutions can discover and target the lead’s timezone. I don’t think that will be within our power. It’s possible we could do an IP geolocation lookup, but so many people use VPS’s these days.March 4, 2019 at 5:23 am #134674
That sounds interesting, I don’t think I would want all the emails bunched up and going out at the same time at 10:00. also the first email would need to go out straight away. maybe its best to leave this feature for now.
After the system has been live for a week I have an issue I am hoping you can help me with:
If a lead signs up using one landing page/form combo, and gets the email with the free download they requested, how can I make it so that the automation will trigger if they sign up for another download using another landing page/form combo?
as the moment because they are already on the system they do not get any further emails
Al.March 4, 2019 at 1:02 pm #134680
For this you could create a rule with the trigger ‘On Lead Creation/Update’ or ‘On Lead Update’ and make sure the trigger filter condition includes the form_id = YOUR_FORM_ID_HERE condition.
That will help you start a new email series based on a new form submission.
