Activating Smart Cron
Smart cron simulates unix cron, which allows tasks to be executed every minute.
The module can only be activated through your production environment.
If you have a preproduction environment that is accessible externally, contact us through the PrestaShop Addons form.
The module will run in restricted mode when run through a local environment. This mode is sufficient for running tests but does not allow recurring tasks to be executed.
To activate the module, go to “Configuration” in the menu, fill in the “Order reference” field with your order number, and activate the “Smart cron” API.
