Hey guys, I use SC's Countdown Timer study on most of my charts.

Is there a way to set an alert when a timer rolls over? For example, on an H4 chart, when that period of time is up and starts over, I would like to hear an audio alert.

It sounds like it would be pretty simple but I have no idea on how to go about it. I apologize in advance for my complete and utter lack of knowledge in this area lol. Thanks!

I have never used this but looking at the documentation, it does what you want.

Go to this page:

https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudiesReference.php&ID=201

and look for the relevant documentation for the study where you will find:

Alert On New Bar: When this Input is set to Yes, then when a bar completes and a new bar is added to the chart, the selected Alert Sound number on the Alerts tab of the Study Settings window for the study will be triggered. For details to configure this particular Alert Sound number, refer to Alert Sound Settings.

Hope this helps

Rob

Also you can choose different sound files.
I recorded couple of files.
" One hour is up "
" 5 min is up "
