dont use j create a new app variable and have you enabled timer

Create a variable and set it to the value you want, for example 5

Set the timer interval to your desired period to check the time.

In the [Fires] even subtract 1 from the variable and then check if it is ZERO. When your variable reaches zero display your message.

That’s it.

We have a sample app in the #thunkable-tutorials section called “Tempus” that deals with lots of different time-related use cases.

Check it out here:


Thank you!
