Timer control in background

Is it possible for the timer control to continue working even when the app is not in the foreground?

it would be very useful

 Just had the same issue on the web app, runs fine with the browser minimised but freezes when i switch to another tab.  

 

Would be great a function that allows timers to run in the background.

I used Audio control instead of Timer. It has all necessay properties as timer. e.g. OnEnd, Time(laps), loop, etc. You can use silent sound file as Media. In my case, I used  one minute long silent sound file and let it repeat as many as I needed.

Hello to all.

I'm having the same issue.

 

Are there any developments on this subject? Two years have passed over this thread.

 

Thanks in advance.

@papires  I've not had a requirement since I responded but I have noticed a new experimental feature that might be worth a go.  It can be found in advanced settings.  If I get a chance I will try and take a look but if you get there before me please post back in this thread 🙂

This I've tried in the browser as well and it works.

Somehow (and the app is to be run on mobile) it doesn't work.
