Comfort timers are currently only accessible from engineer mode.
Would it be possible to add a timer change function to the timer list.
If there is a timer list with the ability to alter the timers then this list could (usefully) then be available in user mode.
Time Programs are available in User Mode. Timer Registers is not available in User Mode. Timers are a programming feature, so there is no need for users to change any Timers. Timers in Engineer mode are only to see the state of timers eg whether running or not

I have yesterday programmed a run on timer for a bathroom fan.
Customer is now asking if we can alter it
Last week I programmed a gate timer - again customer is asking if they can alter the timer
In fact pretty much any instance of us adding a timer the customer would benefit from having access to view or alter the time
Im aware of what you are saying.......(from the designer and manufacturing perspective)l
"""that timers could be made accessible to end users but due to time and resources limitations they are not on your things to do list !"""
Here is what I am saying ( from an installer and customer satisfaction perspective)
In order to offer the customer a better Comfort Cytech experience I believe that us providing programming using a set of timers that the customer can have (limited) access to is beneficial !
If its never going to get on your list of things to do then so be it !
So again to provide further differentiation between user mode and engineering mode ....... why not
Have the timer list in engineer mode contain further columns may be .......
Timer name: Change setting:
Timer status: Timer visible in user menu
T01_gate 3 min active NO
OK how about in the timers screen having another column for the ststus of all timers
I not that the status bar in the RHS of each timer name tab has the timer duration time left which is really useful.
It sounds like the original question, which is a good one, is to allow the end user easy access to change the duration of an event, but not the logic behind that event.
Ie ability to change the bathroom fan run on timer from say 30 seconds to 90 seconds?
Cytech have said, rightly, that timers can have different values in different circumstances.
As a suggestion - could a way for Cytech to think of this be use of user defined variables?
Ie Engineer would define a variable as 'BathroomFanTimer' and set an initial value. In the response logic this variable name would be used. And the user is given access to change the value of the variable.
Maybe in the variable definition the engineer sets 4 things:-
The user would be limited to change the value between Min & Max only.
