The default schedule is set to hourly to avoid heavy loads on the server but the frequency can be changed by using the gform_polls_cron_schedule filter. The format follows the same format required by the WordPress cron_schedules filter Important: the Polls Add-On must be deactivated and reactivated in order to reschedule the task. Example usage: add_filter( 'gform_polls_cron_schedule', 'cron_add_twice_hourly' ); function cron_add_twice_hourly() { // Adds once weekly to the existing schedules. $schedule['twicehourly'] = array( 'interval' => 1800, // number of seconds in the interval 'display' => __( 'Twice Hourly' ) ); return $schedule; }
