The cron service is the service that generates notification emails and the frequency of cron service running varies from site to site. You can find when the crons last ran for your site on the System Status Page.


  • Crons are run by MoodleCloud staff for all MoodleCloud Sites.
  • You can find the details of when the cron last ran for your MoodleCloud site on the System status page:
  1. Go to Site Administration
  2. Click Reports
  3. Click System status 
  4. Click Cron running 
  5. A days/hours/minutes will be displayed (this is the time since cron last ran on your site).
*Alternatively if you are logged into your site you can append /report/status/index.php?detail=tool_task_cronrunning to your MoodleCloud URL to go straight there.
