Preventing Job from being started after certain time
I have a job which is put a clothes wash on, Once the wash is finished I want the sub to be told to empty the machine. This is set as 4 hours later and works fine. However if the sub is doing this after a certain time for example 19:00 it may interfere with the bed time routine.
The sub knows this but it doesn't stop autoassign from adding it.
I tried using the BeforeProcedure in the job but even having it as always deny it didn't seem to function.
Any thoughts? Would be nice to have a resolution as it puts a downer on using the auto assign procedure.
I have considered just getting it to delay the timer which controls bed time instead, but I am not keen on that as a solution to the problem.
@asub: If that is true, then it is a bug in the program. I will look into it.
@SubParProgrammer: This is a complicated situation. There is not a simple solution. One way could be to hold the "Put the cloth wash on" job out of autoassign, so that the sub must start it manually.
@asub: I have tested this, and the program always respects the zzPermit flag, regardless of the setting of Pct.
