Run a function every 5 minutes

Serverless function is a great addition. Is there any way to set it up to run every 5 minutes? Or more options like cron?

All I could find is using requests to a URL, but nothing like CRON.

Hey @danielqba,

This is not available out of the box now, however, what you could do is setup a corn job on a Droplet that makes a curl request to the serverless function. That way it will be triggered every 5 minutes.

Besides that, this sounds like a great idea! The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
