Create Cron Job function in Wordpress plugin
Step 1: Register function on plugin activate

Step 2: add_filter function for interval
//Filter for Adding multiple intervals
add_filter( 'cron_schedules', 'intervals_schedule' );


// define interval function
 function intervals_schedule($schedules) {
  $schedules['everyminute'] = array(
   'interval' => 60, // Every 1 minutes
   'display'  => __( 'Every 1 minutes' )
  );
  return $schedules;
 }

Step 3: Activate hook function
 //Schedule a first action if it's not already scheduled
 function activate_one() {
  if (!wp_next_scheduled('wpyog_cron_action')) {
   wp_schedule_event( time(), 'everyminute', 'wpyog_cron_action');
