⏰ Simple Timer/Stopwatch - New Plugin from Zeroqode

Hi! @ramzizi
Thank you for your patience. :pray:t2:

By default, when the page is refreshed or the web app has lost an internet connection, the time value, counted by the plugin, will be refreshed. To be able to achieve your use case goal, manual customizations will be needed. You can save timer values into the database whenever you press the “Pause” button. So, you ned to do it manually. And please note that this is only possible before refreshing your page.

In this instance, to save the results to the database, please make sure you have set “make changes to thing…” and “create new thing…” actions for the pause button. Please see the correct setup:

Besides, you need to do a search for Plugin’s value: the first item in the appearance. Please take a look at the example below.

I hope this will help you to manage your app with the Simple Timer/Stopwatch plugin more effectively.

Best regards,
Zeroqode Team

Hi @ZeroqodeSupport ! I was wondering whether this plugin would allow me to set a timer once the data is created ‘Create a new thing’ and then deleted after the timer runs out, e.g. deleted after 12 hours once the user has uploaded a photo. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Hi @ylbernhard,
Please accept our sincere apologies for the late reply. :pray:t2:

Yes, it is possible with the “Timer End” event which helps trigger a list of actions at the end of the time set in the timer.

Here you can see how it works: Loom | Free Screen & Video Recording Software

Hope it helps. :slightly_smiling_face:

Wow! That’s exactly what I need. Just to confirm, for example, if I started the timer for 30 seconds and then after 5 seconds I refreshed the page, would the timer be around 20-25 seconds? Basically the functionality I need is I want the photo to delete in real time after 3 hours have elapsed but they don’t constantly need to be on the website if that makes sense :slight_smile:

Hi @ylbernhard!

Unfortunately, when the page is refreshed or the app has lost an internet connection, the time value, counted by the plugin, will be refreshed.

However, you can use “Schedule an API workflow” to delete it on the expiration date.

Please take a look at these forum threads which might help you to implement this functionality:

In case you have any other questions, please let us know. :pray:t2:
