We have the following use case:
- A new user does register on the platform.
- The admin must delete or confirm it.
- After confirmation, each N week by M times a push notification must be sent to the user.
N weeks and M times are set up on another entry on the system.
Can I create a dynamic crontab after each user is confirmed?
Thank you very much
My system does something quite similar.
afterCreate → user.status = 0 → Notification to Admin.
Admin confirms → afterUpdate → user.status = 1 and user.notificationsSent = 0
I have just one cronjob that checks each day if there are existing users with user.status 1 and user.notificationsSent < 3.
If true a notification to the user is sent and user.notificationsSent is updated to user.notificationsSent +1.
If the user logs in he is set to user.status 2 and doesn’t get another notification.
You would just need to check the updated_at-Date to archieve your “after x Weeks” demand.
It is not the thing we are looking for: the time will be different for any user since the time begins after the user is confirmed; at that time the cron must init, so checking periodically has no sense.
