Trigger a build from github, without a webhook

Hi all,

I want to trigger build on a github project, but I am not allowed to place a webhook. The project is:

I am simply a collaborator, the owner is very difficult to reach.

What are my alternatives? Is there anything I can do?
(Triggering manually a build after each commit is not very easy...)

By searching the messages, I saw that I can trigger a build from the API, but is putting a crontab that triggers builds i.e. once a day, is recommended?

    You can set up scheduled builds in AppVeyor. It is UI-only setting which you can find in General Settings UI tab.

    By default scheduled builds are not enabled, we enabled them per request. Just enabled them for petasis AppVeyor account, hope I guessed account name correctly.
