Start timer at specific time

I have a timer that i want to start on a specific time. 6pm for instance and repeat this everyday and keep track even if the app is open or not.

I´ve made a clock to get the realtime into powerapps but i cant figure out how to make the connection to start the timer. 


Anyone have any ideas?

I am not exactly sure. But, controls won't activate unless app is running. 

sorry for the misunderstanding. What I meant was that the app its self should update to real time when opened and can therefore update the timer.

you see I read that but did not make me wiser. 

Ive tried different things but i do not know if im even on the right track. 


Last thing ive tried without success 


OnVisible: Set(currentime;Now())


On timer autostart: If( currentime >= TimeValue( " 06:15:00" ); true; false)
