Cron Node Configuration (Every Hour)

Hi! I just wanna be enlightened by the right way to configure my Cron Trigger. What does it necessarily mean with the minute underneath (The minute of the day to trigger) when I set my Cron to trigger every hour? image

As it runs every hour you can configure there at what minute every hour. So if you have it set to “0” it would run at:

  • 0:00
  • 1:00
  • 23:00

If it gets set to “23” then it would run at

  • 0:23
  • 1:23
  • 23:23

Hope that helps.


Crystal Clear! Thanks @jan

Great to hear! You are welcome. Have fun!


@jan Is there a way to configure the following?

Every hour between 9AM and 3PM daily during M-F?

I’m trying to figure out how best to not run actions outside of those conditions.

Do I need to write a custom function or something as a conditional gate?

I believe this should work for you:

If yes,


Well that seems easier than I thought :slight_smile:

I will try it out!


I didn’t even notice the “Custom Option”! LOL

Definite learning curve here :slight_smile:

Yeah, I learn on this forum a lot, for that and kind people I love this them.

BTW. you in custom mode can use 6 variables (not 5 like I shared) in that case first will correspond to seconds :slight_smile:

Just fyi: The n8n cron node works with both 5 and 6 variables.


Cron & function nodes are game changers. :100:
