Show element at certain time (ET)

Hi- Trying to get an element on a page to only show at/ after 11am ET on the day after the user signs up.

For some reason I’m stuck on this. Any thoughts?

Can you schedule a workflow to update something on the user that triggers the element to show ?

You could ping off something to Zapier then use the “delay until” to then call a workflow to update something on the user to show the element ?

I thought you couldn’t send data to Bubble via Zapier

@emmanuel do you have any ideas here

It seems like this is simple enough that I woudn’t need an API call, no?

OKay update- I figured out 90% of this. My only remaining question is about time zones. How do I account for the local element of this.

I want the conditional to occur at 11am ET, but the “Current date/time” function is localized, right? So if I’m on PT, this will actually trigger at 2pm ET, right?

That’s what I’m trying to avoid.

I’ve seen this question in this forum before.
The answer was that you would need to use an external api to be able to have a global time function. Otherwise it would be localized - as you have determined.

If enough people request a global time function, the Bubble staff may incorporate it into Bubble (hint hint bubble staff):grin:.

You can send parameters back in, and use data from the trigger. So you could send userid out, and back in.

I know it seems like overkill, but Zapier already handles timezones. Hence my answer.

@twr2105 Have you managed to work this around Tara?
I m working on a auction website and i also need global time function integrated.
