This is my first post here and I am just learning Thunkable so please be patient.
I am creating a simple app for a live in person game (like a mini escape room) where the app is used as a minor piece of the activity. The app will be open on Screen 1. Users enter a code and takes them to a second screen which displays text and an exit button back to the first screen. I set up a timer so that if they don’t hit the exit button, it will automatically return to the main screen after 10 seconds.
Here’s the problem. If they DO press the exit button, the timer still activates. This is causing a problem on the first screen. As they are entering the code on the first screen, if the timer activates in the background it resets the main screen back to the original and the user loses what they have typed.
So, my question is…is there a way to stop the wait timer when screen 1 loads? This way, if they do hit the exit button, the timer will stop?
I can’t set the timer to a shorter amount of time as they might need a few seconds to read all of the information.
I’d like as simplistic solution as I can possibly implement as I need this app ready for testing with actual people in 4 days. If I have to, I will remove the timer but that causes a problem if people forget to hit the exit button so it is a last resort option for me.
