How to play an alarm in the background

Is it possible to play a sound even when the app is off? It should be possible for the user to pick a date to trigger the alarm, and then, when it is time, play the chosen alarm tune even when the app is off. I tried
using Google Calendar API, but couldn’t wrap my head around it. Any ideas?


Not possible. Thunkable does not run in the background. The closest you could get would be to use something like one signal to schedule a push notification.

If you want to add an event using google script, you may try this. I did not try it myself


Thank you very much for your help. I will try this out. Will this send a notification to the user at the appointed time?
