The best way to create a cron job in Node.JS is to use a package called 30 node-schedule. The 'cron' format is a set of 6 characters in Javascript, where each represent a different element of time. The order of the format looks like this: '*** * * **` runs every second in the order of a job that runs on the **first day of the week** on **every **day of the month** when the hour is **10** and the minutes are **30** And the seconds are **00** - essentially this job will run every week, at 10:30am.
