PPM timeout at specific time, eg 7 PM, feasible? (PPM 7.5)

Hello forum,

I am investigating within PPM whether a timeout at a specific time (e.g. 7:00 PM each day) is feasible or not.
This timeout then should trigger an action.

Did anyone of you already used this?

Thank you in advance for your feedbacks

Regards
Matthias

You can set the timeout for a workflow step to use a specific value. Set the timeout type to Token and set the timeout time you need in the field for the token. You can use Oracle functions to calculate the time remaining until the time you want the execution to occur.

Thank you Jim,
your feedback sound´s good, I will try it this afternoon.

My objective to use this is simple, I want to trigger an action in an Decission step each evening at the same time (7:00 PM) to push Requests which aren´t manually progressed.
