i tried to use Timer in Dynamics 2016 as solution for our process of reservation products.
The user fill date field and that execute start of the Timer. In another field i have "Status of reservation" and with the end of Timer i need to change the "Status of reservation".
Main problem for me is that Timer cannot be used by Business Rules or Workflows.
Is there any other way please?
Thanks for any advice.
have a look at this article: www.catapulterp.com/set-timer-in-crm-for-case-management
Thanks for link, but that's not solving my problem - i need to execute change of Status field when timer gets 0:00. Timer shows the time till is user's reservation active so i want to stop the timer at 0:00 and start some workflow with change of field Status.
Hi, give a try with below.
Hi Alexandr Jermolajev,
Retrieve the value of the timer using:
var seconds = Xrm.Page.getControl("timer").updateTimeDifferenceInSeconds();
This function returns the current current ticks of the timer in seconds; you can then set the "Status of reservation" field when the value of the timer reaches a certain value.
The drawback of this method is that it will break once you upgrade to Dynamics 365.
thanks for clarification, that's exactly what i needed. Have a nice day!
