Hi,

For this kind of requirements, you can use the mechanism of cron string/expressions https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E12058_01/doc/doc.1014/e12030/cron_expressions.htm  and then use thingworx 'Scheduler'.

If you see the Scheduler, you can configure it using cron expression.

Few more links for your reference -

Maybe you have to write your own custom services which are able to take user inputs (from mashups) and then generate the cron string as output, which in-turn you can use to configure schedulers.

With your use case you might also need to create dynamic schedulers (create dynamic things and configure them)

I hope it helps and give you a pointer to start with.

Regards

Aditya
