Pass parameters when calling "Wake Timer"

By Justin James on 13 Sep 2014
Since "Wake Timer" can be called via code, it would be good to be able to pass paramters to it.

Agreed. I also have a situation where i would need to pass arguments to the timer.
Have you found a workaround?

Yes, you make an entity representing the parameters, and the timer queries it, processes based on the saved parameters, and deletes the record when it is done. It is not ideal, but it works.

Wake Timer action doesn´t accept input parameters. It was nice if we can input information inside a timer.

I had the same feeling the other day when I had to use a WakeTimer, but since calling the WakeTimer multiple times does not mean it will run more than once (if its really fast) this is not really an option.

Instead of asking for inputs for WakeTimers to simulate that behavior maybe it should be a feature request for built-in asynchronous action calls.

That's a better approach! And it could make apps multi-treading!

I agree with João's suggestion!
