How can we improve Microsoft Azure Logic Apps?

Timer Trigger CRON Scheduling

As part of the existing timer trigger it would be great if the interval could be set via CRON expressions, similar to how you allow this with Azure Functions.

For example, I have some scenarios when I want a Logic App to execute once per working day (Monday to Friday here) at 9am

        When I logged this, scheduled recurrent executions weren't documented. The LA team reached out and provided some direction, which covers my use case (and most others I imagine).

        If this is now documented, it would be good to know where?

        Here is the syntax provided by the LA team:

        "recurrence": // optional
        {
        "frequency": "week", // can be "year" "month" "day" "week" "hour" "minute"
        "interval": 1, // optional, how often to fire (default to 1)
        "schedule": // optional (advanced scheduling specifics)
        {
        "weekDays": ["monday", "wednesday", "friday"],
        "hours": [10, 11],
        "minutes": [0, 15],
        }
        }

        I'm happy that this is resolved.
