Is it possible to input identifiers into timers?
Question

Hi all,

I want to use a timer to kick off an action in the background when another action has been finished.

The case is the following:

I have an excel file which i use to load in some records which i save in the entity. After that has been done i want to be able to search for those records and use them in the timer action in the background. The problem is that i can't seem to specify the input parameter with anything other than nullidentifier(). Especially not something in runtime. Is there a way to pass a parameter which i can use to specify which records the timer action should use?


Many thanks in advance!

Hi Bart,

A possible solution would be to create a table to control the files that are loaded, example below:

In the timer you control what is done by the Excel Parent table, example:
