Manual Input on specific date


I would like to manually input “0” value on the specific date (e.g. a week ago) on a variable. Is there anyway to do this?

Good day @dongyoun,

I hope this note finds you well,

You can manually send data to a variable at a specific time using the timestamp key, as follows.

{“variable”: {“value”: 27, “timestamp”: 1514808000000}

Unfortunately, the manual input can’t send the data on a specific date yet, but we are working on improving the widget to have a field in which you can add the timestamp of the dot. At the moment you can send either create an HTML Canvas widget similar to the manual input but asking the date or sending the value via API in any of our supported protocols.

All the best,
