Rate Limiting Logic

Rate limiting logic - iCloud only


For rate limiting shortcuts that update widgets (e.g. through WidgetPack or the like), use this kind of logic to ensure the logic to update a widget runs every hour.

Though you can use a third party app to store a global or universal variable (e.g. Data Jar, GizmoPack, etc.), this method also just uses an iCloud stored text file to save the date instead, removing need for a third party utility pack. Though of course you can use a utility app too.

My intent here is to provide a framework that may be useful to derive your own shortcuts from.
