I am sure I am missing something simple, there has to be something simplier about conditions. I am using VisualCron to schedule about 40 tasks running from every 2 minutes to every 45 days. About half of these must be run alone . Several of these trigger on file activity, so simply scheduling them seperately wont work. How can I have a VisualCron job not run tasks if any other job is running, but wait 5 seconds and recheck. This will allow each job run in alone.

Configuring this in Conditions would be time consuming and tricky. In Job settings you can control that you cannot run a Job while it is running - and that is the main idea that Jobs should be independent of each other and Tasks not. So you should group Tasks independently in Jobs.

You should request a feature that only one Job can be run at once, totally within VisualCron but I guess is not what you want to achieve.

Thank you, I was afraid I was trying to over complicate the process and missing something simple. Yes it is very tricky to configure the conditions for about 20 seperate jobs run indepentely of others. I will submit a feature request for this ability, I would think it should be fairly simple.
