Wake a Timer
To execute the action associated with a Timer, the timer must be awakened, which can be done in one of the following ways:
Automatically: simply indicate when the action must be executed in the Schedule property of the Timer element. See how to Automatically Wake a Timer.
Explicitly: a Timer Action called Wake<Timer> is automatically created when you create a timer element and you can use it to explicitly wake the timer in an action flow (Collection of elements that graphically implement the behavior of an action. You can have flow control elements (If, For Each, ..., End) and you can invoke other actions. Elements in an action flow are linked through Connectors.). See how to Explicitly Wake a Timer.
In both situations, the timer will be handled by the OutSystems Scheduler Service and executed according to its priorities. See how timers are handled.
You can also force a timer to explicitly "run now,", in Service Center, selecting this operation in the Timers' tab of the eSpace screen.
