Hi @Sobenara - Can you explain little bit more about the requirement.
What exactly you are looking to achieve using timers?

Have pictures that change automatically in data that I have in Excel, but it doesn't change automatically in the app unless I update the browser

hi @Sobenara 

 

the time properties you need to use are:

  • Duration: the time you want to refresh, is in milliseconds 
  • Repeat: true so the timer runs always
  • Auto start: true. when the page loads the timer loads 

On the OnTimerEnd property Collect your data e.g. ClearCollect(colYourData, yoursource) or Refesh(yourSource)

 

That should do it.

 

hope it helps,

R

@Sobenara custom page in the model-driven app, no timer control there. if it is a normal canvas app, then i suggest you log a ticket with Ms.

With regards to the issue of the timer control not being available in custom pages, there's a post in the ideas forum that you can vote for here.
