Timer and Refresh

Hi, 

 

I have a timer which i added to my screen. I want my data source (sharepoint list) to be connected to this timer and put a rule that every moment the timer reaches 5 seconds, the data refreshes without the need to click "refresh" on my screen.

Also, i want this to be invisible to others but only visible to editors. Can you help me understand what do i need to do to reflect these 2 points?

 

Thank you!

Su

Hi @Sussan ,

 

Here's a video on how to use a timer to refresh your datasource: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWcQ5MsQ1Xw

 

On you second questions, what do you wish to use as a datasource to identify who is an editor? Should this only be visible when editing, or also when playing the app?

Hi @Sussan ,

 

The only thing I can think of is to place the timer control on a screen where users can't navigate to. Like that, you'll only see it when editing the app.
