I am trying to have a macro start automatically every two hours, more importantly at specific times. Is there any way to do that?

I need to be able to do it for two or three different macros.

thank you for the help :?:

Right-click on the macro and select "schedule execution". It will open a pop-up and you can fine tune your schedule. Do this for each macro.

Hello, I'm using scheduled macro and I'm not entirely sure if its bug or not One macro is using minutes and the other is hours. I thought the scheduled macro would play every 2 minutes after the macro was finished but I was totally wrong. I learned its the duration of the entire macro. so the macro I have is an 55 minutes long so when it finished it immediately play the next one. I fixed it by putting the macro an hour. so after it ran that whole hour it had a few minutes to spare to start it again.

With the 2nd macro created an 57 or so I scheduled the macro to run minutes with 60 minutes on the block and when it finished, it immediately without waiting. I saw this happen a few times so I decided okay I'll put them both 1hr and that 1hr it actually ran the 1hr. I decided to test it again one macro 61 min the other 1hr or do both minutes macro of 61 and 62. Maybe somebody could chime in. Thank you

That's correct.

When scheduling a macro it includes the time spent executing the macro. So you need to know how long it will take to run it and then add some time to it. For example if your macro takes 55 minutes to run and you want it to stop for 2 minutes and then run again you would need to add 55+2 and schedule it for 57 minutes like you indicated.

In your example, I would do the opposite though. Since you have a long running macro and only want it stop for 2 minutes, I would loop it and add a macro.pause("120000") [2 minutes] at the beginning or end of your macro. Then you don't have to worry about how long it takes to execute the macro and it will run every 2 minutes.
