I currently have a zap set up to post images on Instagram, and I want my zap to run around 10 times a day, so I need it to run every 2  or so hours. I currently have it running on the hourly automation with a delay added, but it just posted in the hour-long time frame. How can I get it to run once every 2 hours

Hi @tyler1254564 

Try using Delay After Queue

Set the Queue Delay to be 2 hours.

That is currently what I have set up, and the problem is because it triggers every hour, it delays the first, and then the delays expire each hour after another, so the output ends up with the first one being delayed, but the others after that not.

Add a Filter step to only trigger on even or odd number hours.

Try using multiple OR conditions

Left: [TIME HOUR]

Middle: (Text) Ends With

Right: 0

 

Repeat for: 2, 4, 6, 8
