My "crontab.txt" file is designed to run three scripts in sequence at 3:30PM. Unfortunately, when I run the script, I only see the first script run and the other ones are discarded. What is wrong?

The CRON command does not queue multiple events that would trigger at the same time. So it's true that only the first event at 3:30PM will run while the others are ignored. This is a limitation of the CRON command. If you need two or more scripts to run at the same time, you need to have a single event trigger at the appropriate time that is "smart" enough to kick off the desired number of scripts sequentially.

Robo-FTP 3.10 and later includes a new scheduler that does not have this limitation. You can access the new scheduler from the Configurator.
