    Macro help - any way to trigger based on clock start time?

    Hi all,

    I've got 2-3 live shows a day, and use the clock to give us a countdown to start right on time. Rather than us watching the clock and starting the stream at the right moment, is there a way to trigger the stream to start right at the start of our countdown clock?

    Just curious, and thanks in advance!

    There is not a built in function, but I have a workflow that uses an external Windows computer to do this.

    I've also used it with an external computer running the CURL program from a batch file for this exact same automation flow. Works pretty well, too.

    Thanks Kane, I forgot about the task scheduler system in windows, I'll give that a shot. I appreciate it.
