There’s a forever block under the control drawer. Use that inside a “when screen starts” - check the condition abs then wait one second.

ya thank you that might help… can we check if we are offline the app too? cause i basically want to play a sound on selected time by the user using the time input component

If your user doesn’t have the app open, it won’t do anything. Consider having your app make a calendar item instead.

didnt get your sorry.

you mean saying that data to spreadsheets and all of that

That’s not what I said.

then? I’m sorry i didn’t get you mam

I suggested having your app create a google Calendar item in your user’s calendar (not spreadsheet) - if your user has their calendar set for alerts, this will work even with the app closed.

However, this would require using the Google calendar API - not a beginner option.

Mam any code pics or video suggestions on how to set calendar items? I thought instead of all this we can like the app will share emails to the user. Can we use the share component for the same?

so basically if I have to summarize what I want then:
then I need to check the condition every day
if the date selected by the user using the date input component = current day
then send mail to the user

so basically app should send mail

please reply i have very less time to complete it

Please stop spamming. If someone can help you then they will.


im just asking for updates

You don’t need to continually ask for them. Just be patient please.


Thank you so much for your concern. I’ll be

It’s not my job to update you. I’m a member of the community, not a Thunkable employee (although they don’t deserve to be nagged either).

You started out asking about a checking conditions every second. That had an easy answer. Then you wanted to know how to notify the user when the app wasn’t open. I suggested a workaround, but it wasn’t really for beginners. Then you said you wanted to send emails to the user. Again, the app won’t send emails when not open, so you’d need a different tool.

I’d like to help you (not do your work for you), but at this point, I have no clue what you actually need. I have my own work to do, so I’ll be doing that. If you have a specific question, you will probably get some help if you show your thinking so far (including screenshots of blocks or a description of what you’ve already learned).


Done…waiting has now ended?..

so how do we connect our tunkable app with google calendar? what I thought of is we can send mails to users about the reminder or directly create a calendar item so there only they can set a reminder. ?
