I send some parameters from the previous page (user in previous page has selected a thing from a repeating group), I use the parameters to search for the thing’s duration, and this becomes my Timer (also a thing) Second’s field. I then Do Every 1 Second > Make a change to Timer > Search for Timers:First Item (and subtract 1). I then have a When condition: When Timer <= 0, I show an element that is hidden.
Everything works great, except the system is relying on the search of the “first item” in every workflow. The same record in the database is being changed every time. Would be fine if 1 person at a time were using the system, but that is not realistic.
I know that I can create a new timer, but I am not sure how to grab that new creation in the subsequent workflows.
Any insight or ideas would be much appreciated.
