Use RRULES in Bold Subscriptions

Follow

Overview

RRULES are "recurrence rules" - generally used in calendars - to define when a certain event recurs. They can be simple and define just the frequency, or can be complex and define specific exceptions to the rules. Using RRULES with Bold Subscriptions will allow you to customize exactly when your orders get created.

An RRULE needs to have a frequency, at minimum.

Warning!

RRULES can be fairly complex. This feature is intended for advanced users, who understand RRULES and how to create an RRULES string.

Setup

  1. When creating your subscription groups, select Show advanced options.
  2. Select the Custom RRULE frequency checkbox.
  3. Enter your RRULE string.

    Visit GitHub to see what days your subscription will run with this RRULE.

  4. Select Save Frequency.

Note: These examples focus on more complex RRULES.

Quarterly on a specific month

The subscription will recur once a quarter (March, June, September, December).

RRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;INTERVAL=1;WKST=MO;BYMONTH=3,6,9,12

Irregular interval

The subscription recur at an irregular interval on specific months (every January, February, April, August, October and November).

FREQ=MONTHLY;BYMONTHDAY=12,13,14,15;BYDAY=MO,TU,WE,TH;BYSETPOS=-1

Every month, on the 15th, unless it's the weekend

The subscription will recur every month on the 1st, unless the 15th lands on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. If that happens, then it will recur the previous Thursday, which can be the 12, 13 or 14 of the month.

FREQ=MONTHLY;BYMONTHDAY=12,13,14,15;BYDAY=MO,TU,WE,TH;BYSETPOS=-1
