    Set a timer

    How would I set up a timer to display a message every two hours, all day every day, forever?

    Regards,

    Thanks. The problem I have is that I don't see any way to set it to run, say, hourly. It's a daily orientation.

    Look under advanced settings, there is an option there to repeat the task on an hourly basis.
