I have the need to run Processes, with no human tasks, on a repeating basis, normally 3 times a day, weekdays and excluding holidays. But I also need to run the same tasks on an ad hoc basis. So if I code a new workitem that is a Start task that uses Quartz scheduler (thus holidays can be supported) I could not run that on an ad hoc basis. Alternately I could use a normal Start task and have a diverging gateway as the first node that tests for a boolean param that represents "run now" it could diverge to a converging gateway and thus to the actual first node that does real work in the Process, the alternate path would hit the new Timer workitem that I would have to code that also used Quartz, this would then hit a converging gateway with the direct run now path to start the actual Process that does the work I need. Another alternative is theh start task with Quartz and also an integrated parameter test for pass through. 

Any suggestions on how this problem scenario is best solved?
