Hello @buzz34

You can check our article on How To Setup a Job Scheduler on the DigitalOcean App Platform

You can then define this cron job that will call the Laravel command scheduler every minute. Then, Laravel evaluates your scheduled tasks and runs the tasks that are due.

  1. * * * * * cd /path-to-your-project && php artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1
