Multiple users on one machine: schedule same backup for each user to ensure SD! runs?

I want SuperDuper! to wake from sleep and clone this machine's drive to an external USB drive at the same time every day, no matter who was last using it (and let the machine sleep while logged in). I will set Energy Saver to wake the machine at the same time every day, a minute or two before the SD! run.

The User's Guide tells me: the user who scheduled it does have to be logged in, with their account in front (if Fast User Switching is active), and the
screen must be unlocked.

Is it safe to get every user to log in, one by one, and set up the same Scheduled Run in their account: the same start time, source-target and other conditions?

I am hoping that no matter who last used the machine, so long as they are still logged in when the machine went to sleep, SuperDuper! will open itself and then backup to the external USB. I want the end result to be identical no matter who was logged in. I am hoping that for all those other-user scheduled runs where the user is not logged in, they will simply not happen and not cause a problem.

Will this work? Is there a better way?
