Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Auto Pausing Tests Not Resuming in Paused State on Restarts

This is kind of a feature request, but we have a few tests which only can successfully run at certain times of the day. They are paused at all other times.

So we have set these tests up with an auto-pause schedule.

This works great, except if Simon needs to be restarted or if we need to restart the computer itself. These tests don't first check to see if it should even be running the test or not first.

Could a future version check for this and start in it's auto-paused state if it's so scheduled to be at that time frame?

Thank you.

That sounds like a bug; I agree that it should work as you describe. I've made a note to investigate.

Thank you :)

VERY annoying I tell you. I hope that it's not just me and you can replicate!

Looking VERY forward to a fix!

Cheers!
