Manually run a "schedule"?


#1

Love most of what this controller does, but I’ve been thrashing with what seems like an obvious requirement that is just escaping me. Occasionally (for example, to inspect all of your emitters to make sure they are functioning as expected), it is desirable to manually run a complete schedule (eg several zones with predefined watering times). As far as I can tell, the Quick Run feature requitres me to manually enter the appropriate watering time (if default 3 minutes is insufficient) for each zone…settings I’ve already made when I created the schedule. Am I being dense or is manual schedule run just not supported?

Most of the automation here is great. Love the remote control and record-keeping, but some acknowledgement of basic maintenance requirements and ad hoc watering needs would help. Hope someone can assist???

If you go to the schedule tab and tap on a schedule, there’s a Quick Run button at the top of the schedule settings. That particular Quick Run button should run the full schedule — it has worked for me at least for schedules with one zone. The quick run button at the home screen, for me, does require entering a time.

Thanks, @Kubisuro. Well, duh! Interface kind of implies the Quick Run button will act the same way every time you see it, but you are correct, it behaves differently in different contexts (eg screens). Developers were maybe a bit more subtle (opaque?) than required here…

Hey, Rachio friends…why not include a bit more info on the Quick Run button so context is maybe spelled out for dense people like me…“Quick Run a schedule” and “Quick Run a zone(s)”? Maybe other contexts, too? Not sure how many there are.
