I'm building a system that needs to send a message to an actor once every day that starts off a job (yes, the classic type of 'nightly batch job'). Can I use the built in Scheduler on the ActorSystem or is it better to use a different scheduler (like Quartz) that kicks off this job. The built in Scheduler only uses "TellOnce / TellRepeatedly" but after a specifict time span, not ON a specific time, or have I missed something?

The built in scheduler isn't really intended for that kind of scenarios. if you have a system restart during this time, that scheduled message will be lost

Ok, thanks, will try to use something else for the scheduling
