All day button (trigger periodically while logged in)

I'd love there to be an "all day" button for selecting the time range in the "trigger periodically while logged in".
The setting 00:01 to 00:00 is giving me very mixed results.

I am aware that firing a macro every minute is not recommended...

I’m not sure, so maybe @peternlewis can confirm this:

  1. I think the format requires AM/PM for each time
  2. So the choices would be:
    • 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM     (but this could be confusing)
    • 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM     (which leaves 1 min not in effect)

But I agree with you, it would be very helpful to have an "All Day" setting.

If you want all day, you should presumably use 00:00 - 23:59

But given how insanely complicated that code is (really, you would not believe how much code is involved in making that work properly, with all the combinations, and things like wake/sleep, clock changes, daylight savings (argh!)), it would not entirely surprise me to find that there is a bug in the logic in that case.

A hack for every minute all day every day would be this trigger:

Well, doesn't that technically leave 1 minute not covered?

Is that the same as 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM ?

The UI and description seemed to imply to me that we needed to use the 12-hour system. If it also works with the 24-hour system then the KM Wiki should be revised to so indicate.

See Periodic trigger.

It is dependent on your local settings as to whether it is a 12 or 24 hour clock. The OP has a 24 hour clock setting.

Sure enough -- I just tested KM. When I check the "Use 24-hour time" the trigger in the KM Editor immediate changed.

Just for reference:



Since it is not clear how to set for "all day", maybe the default time should be for all day.
I'm thinking that is likely one of the most common use cases.
