Re: Update column when datetime = NOW()

Hi Peter,

It may be true that the boolean column "bidded" may be redundant - I appreciate that observation. Currently, I'm using the "bidded" column to provide an exists condition in php and the views. e.g. $bidded = $job->complete();.
This queries the bidded column.

Removing the bidded column may be a refactor I need to do...although I think it is very tidy to be able to have a bidded status column as the site uses a non-relational js search feature.

The issue still remains: how create a mysql event (or equivalent name/method in mysql as compared to laravel) when the deadline column timestamp is = NOW().

As mentioned in the original post, a cron job could achieve this outcome, but it would be based on larger intervals not at the exact moment when an existing column timestamp = NOW()

Does that help ?
