WTH is there no easy date automation trigger

We have time based triggers, but no date based triggers.
You can create an helper, but then that is just at one date, there is no simple way to repeat on a day of the month, or day every year. unless I am missing something?

Thank you

Template trigger?

trigger:
  - platform: template # trigger on the 13th of every month
    value_template: "{{ now().day = 13 }}" 

yes everything can be done with code. but it is not always easy. :slight_smile:

Agree, one of the points of WTH was to ask for an easyer option, not the coding one, we know the drill. But thanks anyway for the code! Nice to see :slight_smile:
