Troubleshooting Email Trigger Issue and Clock Reliability
In this meeting, the team discussed an issue where emails were being sent even when the conditions were not met. They explored the variables and conditions involved in triggering the emails. They also discussed the timestamp format and its interpretation. The team suggested creating two variables to check for variance and debug the issue. Additionally, they noted that running the task too closely together resulted in multiple emails being sent, whereas running them one hour apart worked correctly. The unreliability of clocks in virtual machines was identified as a potential cause for the issue. It was recommended to specify a range of minutes instead of a specific minute when scheduling tasks. They also mentioned tracking user email history to avoid sending duplicate emails. The meeting concluded with the team moving onto another topic.
