Time Delayed Event Triggering

events
#1

Is there a way I could setup a workflow that sees an event happen, but doesn’t act on it right away? (by act on it I mean create an Event) It instead starts a counter for 2 hours and gives the device a chance to correct itself before alerting others (creating an Event) of a situation?

Hi @Jonathan_Betke,

Workflows have a set timeout of 60 seconds, so a 2-hour delay would cause a timeout. We do have a feature request here for a countdown timer trigger, so make sure you upvote the post!

One way to work around this would be to store that timestamp, and use a conditional to compare times. This forum post has a similar solution that might provide some clarity. You could store that event time and include a timer trigger with a conditional to check against that time. When it is past that time, you could then create the new event.

Let me know if I can help further!
