Running tasks in the console at regular intervals

I am slowly discovering RancherOS, so far it all feels great. I am looking for ways to schedule tasks to execute within the console container from time to time. I have been looking into the container-crontab, but this doesn’t seemed to be what I am looking for. I am looking to add something like the line below to some crontab that would then perform the work for me:

* * * * * system-docker exec -it console date

Has anyone succeeded in doing this?

I managed to solve this one. It is basically a matter of running a new (system) container that implements cron, giving it away /var/run/system-docker.sock, and running docker exec from time to time. I am using my own efrecon/dockron, but there are other options on the hub
