Can I automate my shortcuts

I have set up shortcuts: with the expectation that I could - call on them
with a rule - or schedule them to happen - app or something
it seams the only thing I can do with the very nice shortcuts I have
created is to turn them on manually.
am i missing something

No, you are not missing something. At this time, you would have to create parallel schedules or device triggered rules that accomplish the same thing.

We have a topic on the #wishlist that requests more rule actions, and this is one of those requests (see third to last entry):

Add More Actions for Wyze Rules
