Dynamic BPMN timer

Does anyone knows how can I set a timer to act on a variable (data) I set up as a date-time element?

Example: If the end date (my variable) is April 13th 2011 at 9.00 am, I need the timer to recognize that and send me and email at that time, on that date.

Is that possible???

Dear Rcajiga,

A timer's duration can be set too dynamically (through a Bizagi expression as an activity action in the timer shape), as shown at

http://wiki.Bizagi.com/en/index.php?title=Intermediate_Event#Timer_Intermediate_Event.

Notice that you may define its duration (in minutes) by using Me.Duration, or you can set a date directly for its expire datetime (by using Me.EstimatedSolutionDate).

To have in this date a sent notification, you may consider setting up alarms.

Best regards,
