Hi @Anonymous 

 

you could use OnVisible function of screne to perform operations

 

You could also use a timer control to do certian operations periodically

 

You could also create a button (visible false) which does the actions you need and call it using the Select function when required. example: Select(buttonname) will trigger the code

Hey @Anonymous 

 

You can create a timer to do so. Set it on a repeat mode and enter the duration as per requirement. You can set the "Visible" property to false. Also, you can write the collect() expression either on TimerStart or Timer End.
 
Auto-Start -> Enable 
Repeat -> Enable
Duration -> 60000 (every 1 minute)
OnTImerStart -> Collect(MyCollection, {Col1:"Value1"})

 

Hope this Helps!
