I’m trying to understand timers. I set this one today at some time before 4pm. Nothing happened. Is the reason obvious?

[Timer-Test]
Start=1610
Sound=Call.wav
Input=Message
Message=Input!
Procedure=X

Hi Simon

If should be 16:10. I'm not sure how 1610 will be interpreted.

In the report, when you start the program first time after the timer has been defined, it will tell you when the timer will start.

Hi Sven

Ok, so a quick test just now shows that it works fine. God knows what I was doing wrong earlier. 

"1610" was a typo here, not in the script.

Thanks for your time.

Always check the report. Sometimes a timer is not triggered until next day. I don't remember exactly when that happens.

Yea - seems that a change of 'start' time doesn't take effect same day. I anticipate that it will activate tomorrow.

That pointer about the report helped. I should have searched the report for the timer name in the first place.
