Project Destroyer 3.0 feature "Custom Delays"
3.0 Adds yet another convenient feature, which is custom delays. Custom delays allow you to run certain tasks with a specific delay and then change it with either the scheduling tool or by a simple click of a button. This allows you to drop delays for multiple tasks with multiple different delays. This could be used for restocks, different sites, or just about anything else you can imagine it to be used for.
Now, let’s check out the custom delay feature!
First, make sure you have the custom delay option enabled on your task dashboard to enable the use of the feature. This is located on the bottom of task specifications along with other options we have.
Let’s take a closer look!
NOTE: The options near “custom delay” may change depending on the site type you’re using.
As you can see the custom delay box is checked, and it now enables the custom delay options to be used. You may notice, there is Err delay, Mon Delay, Second Err Delay, Second Mon Delay.
What must be used with custom delay is at least Err delay and Mon delay. Filling these out means these tasks will run at those specified delays.
Let’s make a task using a single custom delay. As you can see I’ve filled in the first Err Delay and Mon Delay.
My task will now have a 3000 ms error delay and a 3000 ms monitor delay.
PD now offers an option to have 2 sets of custom delays, a first set made of Err Delay and Monitor Delay, then a second set using Second Err Delay and Second Mon Delay. Let’s fill out a task to have 2 sets of custom delays.
As you can see there are now two sets of delays filled in. The blue circled delays represent the first set. The Green circled delays are the second. This means when I first start my tasks the task will have a 10000 ms error delay and a 10000 ms monitor delay. When the delays are swapped, the task will have a 500 ms error delay and a 500 ms monitor delay.
Now let’s look at how to swap delays! There are two ways to swap. In the task setup using scheduling, and in the dashboard using the delay swap button.
I have already filled in the start time for the task. The change delay schedule boxes are now circled. Simply fill in the date and the time you wish for the delays to change
As you can see now the change delay schedule boxes are filled. The task will start on 08/01/2019 at 09:30:00 AM with the first set of delays. The task will switch delays on 08/01/2019 at 09:59:30 AM to the second set of delays.
Now let’s look at the dashboard switch delay button.
First you must start the task and it will start with the first set of delays.
I have circled the switch delay button, which looks similar to an hourglass.
By clicking the button the delays will change.
After clicking the switch delay button, the log now displays the bot has switched delays to the secondary set of delays. You may click the button again and it will switch delays to the primary set of delays. This will again display in logs. You are now able to switch on demand between 2 different sets of delays!
